Installation Notes
  • The Edelbrock #8549 is made specifically for Pontiac V8
  • Installation is the same as for original equipment cylinder heads. Consult service manual for specific procedures, if necessary. For 389-455 engines, use Edelbrock #7381, Fel-Pro #1016 or equivalent head gaskets. NOTE: Edelbrock Cylinder Head Gasket Set #7382 may also be used. This gasket set includes all necessary gaskets for cylinder head installation, including cylinder head, intake, exhaust, water neck and valve cover gaskets. Be sure that the surface of the block and the surface of the head are thoroughly cleaned to remove any oily film before installation. Use alcohol or lacquer thinner on a lint-free rag to clean. Coat threads, washers, and underside of bolt heads with motor oil for accurate torque readings. Torque upper row of bolts to 105 ft. /lbs., torque lower row of bolts to 95 ft./lbs. in three even increments. Start in center and work out towards ends. A re-torque is recommended after initial start-up and cool-down (allow 2-3 hours for adequate cooling).
