Friend of mine has had some bad luck this year. Between falling asleep (working graveyard) crashing his suburban into a cement truck. The engine in his Hyundai blew, he was fired from work for 3 days. He’s had a bad stream of luck. So he’s gonna pay me for my labor and parts so we’re helping each other. Wanting to do things extremely cheap I found a 98 escort in aquamarine. It had a blown head gasket supposedly. Although the head was missing in the sale of the car. So who know what really happened? Whoever took it apart broke the ear off the intake so that’s not gonna seal properly (hack job). I went to the salvage yard and I found a crashed 98 so in theory this car ran while in the accident. So i scored the cylinder head for $90 bucks with the lifters,rockers, cam and cam sensor. I also took the intake from the wrecked car ($50)so now that fixes that issue . I still dropped the head off to my machine shop to make sure the head test good and if it had hardened seats in it or not . The engine in that car was bored oversize so I’m sure everything was reworked but I want to make sure everything is on the up and up.
