I am trying to find a manual for my 06 civic but no one makes it yet well except honda but I don't have 150 bucks for it

I blew the head gasket and I need torque specs and general how to on the head removal
And what special tools are needed

Oh and how to set the timing if I move the chain accidentally lol

Any help would be greatly appreciated

What do you need other than torque specs? What model? Which engine/transmission? I go to work later today I can see what I can find. Yes a lot of the stuff on Alldata is copied right from the manual. I don't get off work until midnight Az time so it may be late before I send you anything.

well what special tools are required,
kind of a general idea of how to remove the head ie: how to loosen the timing chain pull the gear or whatever it takes to get that loose lol

im seriously thinking it will be easier to pull the motor out mainly for room and I need to do the clutch as well in 06 they decided to sink the motor in the firewall about six inches it is tight to get to the back of the head


my car is an 06 civic EX coupe 1.8l 5 speed man.

thanks man

Thanks guys

Well I had a little set back I've had the motor ready to go back together but I found a crack in my head

I have been looking for an aftermarket one but no one makes it yet so I found a used one local and I'm trying to acquire funds lol

You're welcome, glad I could help. :tup:

Did you end up doing any mods to the engine while it was out? :confused:

I am old big block guy, but I am very impressed with the Japanese motors. I could only imagine what you might get if Honda made a 454.
