Nice pics. I like the custom head bench. Also good job on putting everything into baggies. I am in the process of doing the same thing.

the part i left out was that i am a supra n00b and i have never been this deep in car parts before, ever. I had help taking the head off but I was winging it for this section, and if I can do it without a pic-by-pic then i am 100% sure you will have no problems.

hook me up with the rep points, yo!

Great write up and details man.

Question though, were you replacing the stem seals? If not, you don't need to take out the valves to get the head resurfaced. I'd make sure the valves are back in place and get it pressure tested for leaks.

Good job man.

I'm still on the fence about the stem seals...i got the gasketpro.com head set and it has viton stem seals, and honestly i don't know if they will hold up better than my stock toyota seals with 158k miles on them. I'm going to replace them and see what happens

that's how i learned. I did a turbo swap as my first major project, before that i think i might have done a brake job and fluid changes. keep it up

Heh, so am I, and after i took my head out i said, what the hell and decided to just get the whole damn engine rebuilt! So now its off at the shop getting built... pulled the motor all by my lonesome... hoping to have her back in and running before July... gotta get a new clutch too..

Just pulled my whole exaust system today... not that bad, it was all rotted out so now i gotta dump some dough into a full system... 3" all the way baby..
