[16] you should put the tools down

#1 calling toyota for a nissan head gasket
#2 fak just calling the dealer for a gasket wtf
strike #3 not knowing your left or right when looking at a motor

# 1 no I called nissan not toyota typed wrong
#2 dealer because owner wants factory part
# 3 yea I should know efects from heart attack some things I just can't remember
and the dealer parts guy said right and left is standing in front of car
but in collision repair its sitting in the seat
I don't want to get the wrong one the way he's saying it would be the left
and the way I'm thinking it would be the right

Front of engine is the drivebelt end, so look at it from the trans end (drivers side) the bank on the left is to your left, the bank to the right is the right side

Read the manual.

ya, your looking for the right one.

HOWEVER,
check the pricing. Last time i had to buy one, It was cheaper to buy the entire engine gasket kit than it was to buy the gasket.

and as you know, you will need an exhaust manifold gasket and the intake manifold gasket. as well.

I bet the whole kit is cheaper

think someone had their beer goggles on when they were reading their manual
and your right jer the full gasket set is cheaper
talked customer into doing both because of price of gaskets
and the torque to yeald head bolts only come in a full set
i got confused with the barely English speaking parts guy
saying it was from front of engine not back

I used to looking from the flywheel to determine left and right bank. Then numbers start from opposite end. Manufacturers have there own way of doing things sometimes. .....

Coming from the guy who's having Bruce help you build his truck, that's kinda funny.

[16] where does it say I don't know what I'm doing
because I asked a ? because a parts guy doesn't know wtf he's doing ?
(I'm shure your a expert because you read a book too)
and tells me the opposite of what it is
so if I had listened to what he said I would have got the wrong part
and the key word is building tods truck
not bolting parts together that were made to fit together

there are very few people around here that could build anything as cool as the lemon tart or Tod's cruiser. so those who need to attack skins ability for asking a valid question should think to themselves this simple question.

can i out-fab/build/mechanic skin?

The answer by the way is no.

just my opinion. but anywho
ive always thought right is bumper .left is firewall.
but then again i fkn hate front wheel drive shit so other than the crap my wife owns i don't touch it.

no worries I just look at the source and laugh
I build what I build because I enjoy pushing my abilities
and try to do the next one be it a simple bracket or a whole build
better than the last and learn from mistakes not repeat them
pretty shure I won't have another truck burn to the ground
