N00000, not the headgasket........
Thats right, the head gasket on the NA has just gone :( Anyway, not to get too upset (despite the fact that id just booked it in for extractors etc on wed), im looking at what my options are.
Not having the time to do it myself, ill most likely be getting it done at my mates workshop, which will cost me around the $550 mark, provided the head is in cood condition (not corroded etc). However, im thinking of rather than take the risk that it is not ok, im looking at getting another head from a newer model, that I know has good valves/is in good condition (hope that makes sense) and fitting up my cam/rocker gear to it. I realise that any head I get will need machining, but that is already included in the $550.
So, aside from the tickford heads, which are near impossible to get, what should I be looking at, keeping in mind I have el rocker gear and wade cam. Will this gear fit onto an AU head (which I can pick up, in good condition for around $260) or should I go for an ef el, or mabey an earlier one still (eb-ed)
