Hi

Looks like I've blown a head gasket on the cruiser (94 GXL). Symptoms are white smoke and losing coolant - otherwise its running fine. Mechanic pressurised the cooling system and observed a rough idle for a little while after restarting - so suspects a small leak in the gasket somewhere.

I'm tempted to have a go at removing and reinstalling the head myself and getting it reconditioned.

I've read through the FSM which shows removing the cams before removing the head. I was hoping I could just leave the cams and send the whole head off to be done, including valve clearances, and then bolting it back on intact - Is this a possibility? or will i have to remove and reinstall the cams myself?.

You need to remove the cams to get to the head bolts. You will also need to send the cams to your machine shop so they can get your valve clearances correct
