Off with the head

While stripping the engine I discovered that the previous owner had snapped an exhaust stud - v.frustrating. In the past I have never had much luck with removing snapped studs using various methods and tools, so I decided to let a professional do it. A machine shop were able to machine the stud out for a few quid. It did mean removing the head though

All now re-built with new gasket, and new head bolts. The Edelbrock inlet manifold, carbs, and rocker covers have been transferred from the 3.5l to the 3.9l.
