Hello Everyone,
I'll get my hands on a bore scope to take a look inside the hole to see whats going on.
What should I be or not be looking for?

Thanks again for the quick responses!

I'll get may hands on a bore scope this weekend and report whats it looks like on the inside.
So this #8 bugger has been the cause of my ticking sound. Seems to always be something.

Thanks

Hello again,

Got everything taken apart and here is how she looks.
Valve stem on #8 broke.
The head gasket looks to be in good condition with no missing material, no sign of any coolant in the oil.

It looks pretty busted up.
I think I can buff the piston head though.
And buffing suggestions, tips, methods?
Dremel, material?
This is my learning curve so give me what you got to get her back on the road.

Thanks

I think that was a joke. New heads and pistons is more likely.

Thanks!

The stalling must have been caused by the valve spring failing which led to contact between the piston and valve head?

I have been wondering about that too. I am leaning more toward what you said about the valve spring being the first part of the fail

UPDATE
I got everything all cleaned up and was able to source a pair of clean and reconditioned cylinder heads. Got them installed along with all new gaskets, bolts, and a fuel filter and she fired right up.

This was my first head gasket job. I just took parts off and off and off till I got to the head. The only pain was getting the valley gasket holes to line up on the block. I simply stayed with in until it was done. Fired it up when all complete and it sounded much better. Had a small amount a smoke coming from the manifold, not sure if it was from oil or a possible leak farther down.

In the end I have to once again thank this site for all the helpful threads on this matter.

Thanks!

Congrats. Completing that project is no small feat. Glad to hear it went well and here's hoping your work results in a reliable solution for the long term.
