Back in front of the house after completing a successful first road test...
Last Fall (2001) we started the engine for the first time and noticed a leaking head gasket. Now that Spring is here (2002) we pulled the head and replaced the gasket and a bad head bolt.
Dad, cleaning the nasty exhaust manifold.
