Just got word from the shop that was suppose to fix up my valve seats that the head was cracked.. I don't know what to make of this since there was absolutely no leak to begin with, wouldn't a cracked head for surely leak? Now that this bomb was dropped on my lap, I'm asking for anyones input on what should be my next step. (Vehicle info 4.2L 258 81' CJ7) Anyone have any good info on some contacts for a remanufactured head? What should I do????
