Well, ten hours, 76 dollars worth of fel pro gaskets a can of ford blue spray bomb half a can of copper spary-a-gasket and a few busted knuckles later my headgaskets are sealed tight as drum :D

Took it for a ride came up to the O of NORM, came back down a little bit below n of norm and heat blows hot, never came up past O, No oil leaks, got rid of that one small exhaust leak, must have been head to manifold casue i left exhaust manifolds attached

Im so happy it worked, i suppose i can advance my timing again since my heads are cooled by water again, the steam cooling didnt fair to well i had to reatrd last week since it was pre igniting, sad shops get upwards of 1200 dollars to do this job, it wasnt all that bad.......Car also runs smoother and seems to have more power even with the timing retarded

Oh and the cylinders look prime, still got factory cross hatch in them :D should be good for another 100k

well i had 2 choices do it myself now, or puke the motor, and the latter would've been a crappy choice.


And thanks alot all you people i couldnt have done it without you
