welcome man, nice to see another owner around here.

I've been trying to rally the troops ever since I bought mine and "met" all you guys... 3 summers now and it hasn't happened yet I guess people need running cars to make it out lol.

This summer I'll probably be a no go if there is something - I haven't drove my car in about a month now and I think I am going to take the plates off it in the next week or so.... I just don't drive it up here.

running car

Yeah, running cars are good

Looks like I'm going to be taking mine off the road next weekend to rebuild the engine. Lots of little things that I'd like to tackle all at once

-Bad valve stem seals (puffs blue every startup!)
-Clacking lifters
-Leaky rear main seal
-Stock (but still OK) HG that needs upgrading

I figure I might as well pull the motor, and just give'r on it. As it stands now I think I'm gonna do the works

Metal Gasket (HKS/Greddy/Cometic ... any opinions on which is best?)
ARP everything (head blots, main studs, rod bolts)
Oil pump
Ross pistons (of $$ permits)

Sounds like a fun time, and a hell of a lot of machine shop work Anybody have preferences on shops or know of guys that have experience with supra heads?

...startin' to sound like a big chunk to chew!
