I decided to go thru the engine and do the valves, silent blocks, new heads, basically the gaskets, cosmetics and ancillaries.

To get to the engine, I removed the fenders hood and radiator and grill surround. Much easier to get to the engine.

Picture is of disassembled top of the engine. Ran a die over the head bolts and the threads were stretched, so I will have to replace them. I guess the PA thought some extra torque on the cast iron heads would be good.
