option 3 is the way to go here may.. the head gasket is a piece of piss to change, ½ day with your self a few mates an BBQ and beer.. however incorrect ratio of work to beer may result in longer go to whoa time for replacing gasket.
1:1 ratio is acceptable 1hour : 1beer, however for the first 2 hours a ratio of 1:3 is also suitable then revert to 1:1 ratio to maintain alcohol blood levels




I have a car.

Yeah! Cant argue with the 1:1 ratio. Overdid it when we did the last engine and finished up spending the night in Flinders Medical Centre after cutting tendons in my right hand due to alcohol aided misjudgment!! But yeah DIY man! Save yourself a s**t. Biggest drama is actually getting the headbolts undone! Those bastards can be tight!!!

You'll rope an ol' blue norther and milk it 'till it's dry

Bulldog the Diamantina pin its ears down flat
