    Sounds promising. After this hopefully you'll be good to go and can just enjoy driving it.

    Yes I hope so. It has had me watching it very close the last month or so. Now maybe I can relax.

    As long as the heads aren't cracked you will be good to go, just a clean up and resurface should be all you need. Your compression ratio will go up slightly after surfacing the heads, and higher oil usage can sometimes happen, just keep an eye on your oil level after the work is done.

    Thank You. I had almost no oil usage before but I will take your advise.

    Got it back last Tue. All is well, runs great everything working as designed. Now I hate to put it away for the winter.
