how are you going to repair the head gasket?

do you mean the head, cracked corroded etc, then take it to a head shop to be done.

They crack tested the head, machined it and replaced the valve stem seals.....

$110 ALL UP.

They also replaced something else (can't remember though!).

DANDENONG REBORES - on cheltenham Rd.

I then assisted my mechanic putting it all back together! Not recommended if your not use to muckin' with engines!!!

Good luck!

Cheers - Matt. :D
