2000 Explorer 400 A00CG38CA Replacing head gasket

Recommended Posts

I just had the head milled because of engine overheating due to temperature probe failure. Should I use gasket sealer/eliminator on new head gasket when I reassemble?

I would only recommend a gasket sealer on the base gasket only if the cylinder is off. The head gasket is designed with compression pockets that flatten out when the head is tightened down sealing any slight voids. 

I highly recommend tightening then head down with a torque 🔧 to the engine manuals specs.

      I am hoping one of you knowledgable people can answer this for me. I have a yfm200 moto 4 engine I want to put in an off road go kart. I would like to mount a sproket where the drive exits the case before the u joint so that I can get rid of drive shaft and make engine bay compact. To do this I would mount engine 90° to axle but would also need to tilt it forward 15° to account for the angle the drive exists rear of casing. Would that be ok? Would oil pump etc still work. Any advice greatly recieved.
