Decided I’d finally bite the bullet and do some preemptive maintenance on my Disco’s biggest known issue, the head gaskets. They were starting to weep and probably could have lasted another year or two, but why risk them giving up the ghost when I’m in the middle of nowhere. Everything was going fine until I got to the head bolts, seems the PO was a cheap lazy piece of shit and instead of replacing the head gaskets he just torqued them down more. I had to use this to get them off.

I’m no expert but I don’t think 4.5ft breaker bar should be needed to remove head bolts of a non commercial vehicle, guess I have no choice but to get the heads decked. On the upside my sleeves are in good shape so this truck was never over heated.
