Good luck.well, my friend Rick has been very busy. I guess I should have just done it myself. I thought it would be faster to have him do it, boy was I wrong lol. anyway the good news is there was no major damage. all the valves were fine, the pistons and cylinder bore was fine. and no major damage to the head. so we had the valves lapped for good measure, we got them back from the machine shop today. hopefully I will be able to get it back home by the end of the week. I have to be out of town until friday but hopefully I can take it back home friday and get back on track.
