    That was actually more of a design flaw in the engine block. The cylinders (all 4 connected) had no webs attaching them around the outside of the block at the top. They would shrink/drop/whatever in the center and the headgasket could no longer seal across the block and cylinders.

    I was the engine man at a local Chevy dealer, and the foreman found a place in OKC that would mill the top of used blocks down level and bore/rebuild them as short block assemblies pretty cheap. The cylinders would only drop down so far, so once re-milled they gave no more trouble. I replaced quite a few of 'em.

    Had a rather goofy overhead cam/valve adjustment design IMO, but it worked ok.

    Apologies for getting off topic. Carry on. :drunk2:

    The process is prohibitively expensive at this point, but there was an article in Scientific American last month suggesting that, someday, hemp will be used to replace human blood. Who'll be laughing then?
