I hear "leave well enough alone". So my plan changes to clean, paint and polish the engine. Attend to the oil leaks.
Do you think that I should have the heads worked? I could just lap them or bring them to a machine shop for valve and seat grinding. Thoughts?
I took the water pump off today (taking stuff off for cleaning and painting). Isn't there supposed to be a thermostat in the top housing, Well there wasn't. Another hint as to why they replaced the head gasket, overheating issues?
