Roberto::::empty out your pm box *please* so that I can pm you.

Sorry, I'm not trading my blinged out bimmer for anything! Not even for a full set of Ford Racing spark plugs.

i'm crossing my fingers that your head is not cracked........if it is though, just pick up a new one like Roberto suggested.
That's a serious consideration if the head turns out to be cracked. Tools arrived yesterday, locked the flywheel and inserted the chain tensioner so the head will be ready to be removed by midday. I just need to call upon someone to help me lift it out, hopefully be the end of the day so I can finally take it to the machine shop tomorrow.
And yes, have been doing nearly everything Roberto and others have suggested since everything is exposed.

Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed.
