    About removing the bleed bolt now...at this point, I'd leave it, and the cap, alone and instead concentrate on the level in the expansion tank.

    I haven't made the leap to LED head/tail, cluster yet, but I've tried to do the rest. I did the backup lights first, back in 2011, and they were the most expensive but a big improvement. There...

    Yes, pass. side rear is a very common location. Same thing I found on my '90.

    No coolant in the oil, but bubbles/gases in the expansion tank, and plugged cats.

    You've identified at least one fail, no doubt. I've got a used gasket that looks just like it ;)

    What cylinder is that? Passenger side rear?

    TTY bolts are 'springy', meaning they can act funny when you try to remove them, especially by hand.

    The click is when the external plastic keeper grabs. If you want to worry about something, worry about if the metal pins & tangs are making reliable contact inside the connector. Even if the keeper...

    I've only used Fel-Pro and had good luck. I also had my heads refinished to RA20 (a smoothness factor).
