I will probably pick up a SCP head when it's convenient. Sucks because this one was rebuilt not too long ago and is still in great shape.

Perfect opportunity for an LH 2.2 swap.

Or my 398 head.

Thanks!

Here's a picture of the headgasket from a few months back.



And here's a new transmission for when mine decides to start slipping all the time. Hopefully do the accumulator mod and put it in this summer.



Also a #rare part in the bag that's related

well this happened about a year and a half ago. Since then I bought a 86 245, and then a 96 854 Platinum. Car has Microsquirts on it now. It's finally almost fixed up. I see all my old PB links are bad now but I don't really care right now.
