...And it Begins
Ive started this thread on my car so i can get help where required and to give updates on progress. It is also my intension to document and photograph my work for display here.
So to begin;
Went to Bursons today and got quoted $90 for the Gasket kit for EB falcon, also got quoted $120 for an AU gasket kit. The thing is, the guy said the AU gasket is available on its own, but doesnt come with "Shimmy" What is this and do i need it? I know i could get away with only the regular Gasket kit but i figure it might be worth putting the AU one on, bearing in mind im intending on selling the car.
Also, should my head be warped or corroded, how much could i expect to pay to have it made good, or is it worth getting another head, maybe a EF one from someone like, i dont know, Sunny.
Have organised a free Pressure check or radiator to see if there are leaks and if so where, and plan on doing a compression test to see where the blown hole is.
Anyways more updates soon. Mods, i know this looks like a tech thread but it isnt entirely, i ask that it be kept in the E-series folder.
