Important part is you found it, it's simple to correct and no damage done!

I stuck a new head gasket on, retorqued the head, and resealed everything Sunday morning. Just have to reinstall the harmonic balancer and check the swipe with the adjustable pushrods. Going to use a roller rocker to see how the contact with the valve stem tip looks. Then I'll order pushrods and finish buttoning it up.

Still need to finish painting the frame, and reassemble the front suspension before I can install the engine/trans. :bang I need some cooler weather, with no rain, and a few consecutive days off. Then I will really be able to do some collateral damage.

Balancer is back on, and pusrods are ordered. Should have the valves run and the rest of the engine buttoned up by next weekend. I need to paint the frame and reassemble my front suspension next.
