Well my machinist buddie was off to the races with the head, then he broke out the needle scaler and presto! my heads are no good
Amazing that such a heavy casting can rot from the outdide in. This project could be a bust, buy a set of heads, gaskets, misc stuff and i'm halfway to the cost of a jasper motor with no guarentee. Go the jasper route, new carpet, interior, and i sell someone a sweet boat but don't make a profit. Arrgh!
Here's some before and after pics of the head.
Wow on the heads
I had bought a bolt out kit from Sears that works really well on rounded bolt heads. The sockets really grab the rounded head and hold it tight. The kit wasn't too expensive.
