View Full Version : Burnt valve

So, about two months ago my '02 started running really bad. Compression test showed zero compression on number 4. Turns out burnt valve and blown head gasket. This picture was taken seconds after I took the head off. Still haven't drained the coolant from the block. Check out evidence of blow by on number 2 and 3. 32 years of UGLY!

Here's the head, right after I lifted it off. UGLY!

oh my! Spray some simple green on that and she'll be good as new!! :D

Keep us posted on the progress of the fix, or rebuild if you go all out.

Here's a pic of the gasket failure between 3 and 4. Check out the blow by, time for rings and bottom end rebuild this winter!
