Good info in that thread. I ordered the washers they were talking about. Bag of 100, I'll have plenty if anyone needs.

Now I have to find that double washer that connects every 2 bolts, there were none on mine, I never knew they had them. Also ordered new bolts from BD.

Hey Rob, which washers did you order ? I did the CV boot on the passenger side last winter and I was under the bus last week and saw the drivers side is ripped. :roll: This is a messy job that I don't look forward to.

Well, it's that time I guess.

After checking out the spark plug hole it's been decided that head is fubar. So new heads it is. Got the heads off, let's deal with that sticky lifter. Might as well check out the pistons, etc as well. So probably a top rebuild is in the cards. Might as well change the exhaust too.


Fu#k. Didn't plan on this. But, that's the way it usually happens. So hopefully it'll be ready for the start of camp/show season.


Mike, what exhaust did you go with? Are you happy with it?
