OK I AM GOING TO GET THE ENGINE RUNNING BUT THE WRENCH
THINKS THAT THE HEAD BOLTS ARE SHORT LIVED DO I REPLACE THEM NOW
OR NOT!!
keep in mind that this will not be a car that is going to be driven a great deal
and i'm wanting to keep it as stock as possible.
the head bolts are not seen and are a safety for the motor which i'm ok with!!
but does that change the stock aspect of the car!

It doesn't make sense to me to take the top end off to replace head studs unless one or more are broken. Thats alot of work and expensive and opens up the possiblity to create new problems and takes away the origonality.

Are the spark plugs W3DPO?

Got it written down at the shop will get it in the morning

the problem is that it toOK me over a year to get in the shop.
and i think he knows what he's talking about and from reading
about these cars the head bolts sound like a inevitable thing!
the money I'm OK with but the stock thing I'm not!!!

I'm not sure I'd replace them right now. Worse case is if you do drive it some and a head stud pops, you then can replace them.

If it aint broke, don't fix it...

As previously mentioned, they haven't been heat cycled so I don't think I'd worry about them at the moment.

Jim is spot on about the S hose. Get a new genuine one!

Now, since it is already on the trailer bring it to my house and drop it off.I will go out and put some mile's on it for you.That way you can concentrate on getting all the other car's lined out and not stress about needing to go out and drive this one.
