3.8 head gasket INSTALL

hey guys im in the midst of changing my headgaskets, ive actually got the heads off and at the shop but i will be picking them up tomm. ive got sorta a mess, ive got most all plugs and hoses labeled, but on the wiring harness, i just ended up clicking and up plugging until it came out completely, i know which plugs go where due to labels, but i dont have ANY idea how it was routed



those 2 bags of gaskets in that picture, the only ones in little bags....

i never saw those, what are they and where do they go, some injector stuff or something

if anyone has pictures of the job or any steps of it that would be helpful

its always easier to tear down than put back togather

The bag nearest the top of the picture has new o-rings for your fuel injectors. The bag just below it has new valve seals.

Your wiring harness should be laying closest to the components it connects to.

Just make sure it stays out of the way of any moving parts, and youll be fine. Zip ties are a god-send.
