i'm getting the machine shop to tell me what stuff i need as far as all bearings crank and all i'm taking it to precision crankshaft in jax. fl, i've been told good stuff about them... and its kinda gonna go slow bc i gotta wait on money...

on the work side i got the head seperated today... i couldn't see where the head gasket was busted but i had really really bad buildup on my pistons and in the combustion chambers... i need new head studs... anyone know where to get some arp for cheap let me know...
i'll post pics tomorrow morning...
