More pics

After two days of stripping the engine. We found the 6 broken head studs and two that seemed to be on the edge of pulling out.

The engine is stripped down and I just dropped it off at the machine shop.

They scared the crap out of me. He said that he believed that I needed a new piston. Then he checked it with some stuff and came back to me and said that I was fine. He will be resurfacing all 6 heads and putting new valve guides and seals. Also new rings and cleaning the pistons. Cleaning the cylinders and machining the top of them where they seal to the heads.

Good things were that the cams looked new. No pitting or marks.

Crank looks good. I might throw new bearings in it. I haven't decided yet. I'm pisssing out tons of money right now. The bank account is getting smaller by the day.

Anyway here are more pics.
