So over the past 2 weeks the civic has been sitting dormant. We installed the new OEM headgasket and were starting to put everything back together when we realized there was oil still leaking from the corner.
Fast forward to now. I just received the head from Gilbert automotive machine shop, where Eric did a great job redoing the head. He planned and milled the head to make it flat, installed new valve seals, and reseated the valves.
The head looks so clean I could eat off of it (not recommended). As the holiday’s approach the civic still sits in the driveway waiting to be put back together. In due time it will be back ok the road.
