might have to bail on zookin2k+1

I am very very very bummed right now. Fired up the little stocker and am seeing bright green stuff dripping from just under the header, between cyl 3 and 4 (with #1 being closest to firewall)right at the header bolt. I'm assuming this is a blown head gasket, which would mean a much greater problem(warped head??) I got a mirror out and looked beneath the bolt and the header bolt has protruded through the actual casting!! You can see the threads of the bolt! Fortunately, the bolt is still secure, and I am able to remove the nut. This is a big ouch. So great gurus, which is this- a MAJOR problem like I expect or is it something less, that ol Mr JB Weld would fix. Obviously I dont want to "mend" one problem only to result in a much greater problem(i.e. Hydrolock!)
Opinions, thoughts? If it is something with the head- how involved is it to remove? Should I consider a new engine instead of the hassle?
Damn im p.o'd right now and sad I about this w/e.

Re: might have to bail on zookin2k+1

That's the reason I've been working on minor mods, and not touching anything important. If I don't see it, it doesn't exist and I can still wheel the Zuk with a clear conscience.

I know I need to adjust the carb, it idles high coming down hills, but I don't want to screw it up for this weekend so I haven't touched it.

Dean, with all the money you gave for the dinner, you should at least come out and eat! Grab a seat with another sammi theres always room. I just let dannyl drive one of mine, but im sure there is an open seat that someone has. shove a bolt in that hole, tighten it up and come out and we shall look at it there.

Re: might have to bail on zookin2k+1

max - i seriously thought of that- especially knowing that the Louds are cookin. But- i just rec'd the returned check from Tim!! I wanted to have that go towrds the fund but i guess it got returned before he saw my note. Oh well. More importantly- any ideas on head work? Any leads on a nice engine Max? And when is the next wrenchin get together?

Re: might have to bail on zookin2k+1

Hey guys.

I totally beat. Been trying to do too many things in too short of a time. When I finally dropped (30 mins ago), I wouldn't have got up there before the gate closed.

So I'm on my way bright and early. Sleepy now.

Dean - Wanna ride with me? I have no one as of yet, since DannyL whored up to Max for a ride of his own![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. You can drive some if ya want.

Ugh, must sleep. Bed time for Timmy.
