My neighbor was in front of me that morning going to work.
He took off pretty quickly, I chased him out of the neighborhood with foot into it pretty far for the first couple hundred yards.
(996 T v 928)
Ran great the remaining 11 miles to work.
At lunch, on the start, it failed.

This car, remember, was the van winkler, which was parked with 70K mi and sat a decade in Mass before Stan Shaw and I rescued it.
Was interested in your pic of the headgasket. I had worried about its condition for years based on all the discussion about corrosion.
Had what appeared to be new green antifreeze in it when we got it, but it hadn't been changed in years.

Replacement head and cams on the way. Thanks Tom (and Mark).

So I was able to get out there and clean up the valves and then used some lapping compound and the old head to get them renewed.
They passed the drill test with the straight edge and then held fluid, I used gasoline instead of kerosene.

Got the second head off the block tonight, amazing how quick you can do it when you know what you are doing, right?
Anyway, everything else looks good.
I was going to break it all the way down, and then decide if it will come back as a spare stock engine -- or will I go nut$$$ and do a performance rebuild, and then put it in the 86.

I vote performance build. Stick in some GB windage trays, Colin's triflow cams, sharktune it, and enjoy some torque

if you swap cams with Colins then you may also be using different valve springs as part of the swap

Only surprise was a cam tooth must have found its way to the pan and must have been thrown around on the crank.




Pulled piston (1). Not too shabby.
