What are you doing with the 2.3t engine?
I found that the exhaust valve seat was cracked on cyl #2. Bought a turbocoupe for a replacement head and it was also cracked in the same exact spot. Decided i had enough of that and wanted to put something more reliable in. So i snagged up a 4.0ohv.. and here i am pulling my hair out tryong to figure out how to make it work lol

Ssshhh... Don't type it too loud... I don't want PJ412 to know I'm just messing with him. I've never had any real issue with the 2.9L , except that it's underpowered.
