Head Gasket 5.4 lt 4V Boss
The Factory Ford head gasket in the 5.4 lt 4V Boss engine was never one to have significant issues leaking.
In our workshop we were always happy to run std head gaskets with up to 10 lb of boost.
The original Ford gasket is .030 thick
It is very important the head and block surfaces are level and square.
When doing a set of head gaskets on a 5.4 lt Falcon its really important to have a smooth machined surface. ( not all machine shops are up to this task ) . On top of that, factory head bolts are single use only. So stepping up to head studs is also a step forward.
Then we have the issue of installation process , its important to follow and process`s that may be dictated by the head Gasket manufacture or head stud manufacture.
Having a good quality tension wrench is a must in getting the torque just right. I personally use a snap on electronic Torque wrench and find it is exceptional and a must in getting the job right.
This item is a pr , Left and right head gaskets are included.
