Nearly Fixed

It turns out that the dealership was having a bad week or something. Charlie ended up taking both heads off, and after noticing that the timing was off, he had the heads checked for warpage. It turns out that both sides were warped 8 thousands of an inch. That doesn’t sound like much, and it isn’t, but the tolerance is 2-3 thousands. The head gasket it also in that same 2-3 thousands range, making any greater warpage a serious sealing problem.

He’s replacing the rear main seal and should be installing the clutch and flywheel with one of the expensive, but effective TranQuil throw-out bearings and sleeve. Cams are in, and everything just needs to be bolted back on and plugged in.

I’m hoping to get it back tommorow afternoon at some time. I can’t wait to drive it.
