First time I did plugs I went to Harbor Freight and bought a Torque Wrench. Still blew a plug. So second time I did plugs I hand tight them. Still blew tights.

Just bought a used Romeo head cheap. What all do I need to buy to replace the head? I know head gaskets. Do i need new intake gaskets? Head bolts?

Arp hardware is pricey but you only buy it once. New gaskets, new hardware.

Looks good. Its great that you are having it checked out. If you could post what they charged you for that i would be very curious as I will be having this done at some point as well with a full PI head set up. Glad you found a deal on one!!

Yes agree with Scott you have to be very carful with these heads, there are only a few threads holding the plug in and you should use a torque wrench, one of the best investments in my tool box!

Machine shop charged $100. Resurfaced, check for cracks and leaks, new valve seal.

Just one question... did you use anti-seize on the plug threads when you tightened them down? Because that does make a difference.

No antiseize. Thought about using it though.

Ding ding ding ding ding.

You are overtorquing and this is very likely why you keep blowing out plugs.

Should antiseize be used? What torque do you usually use? I believe i used 15 last time.
