The head finally arrived! It felt like forever, but did give me an opportunity to take care of quite a few things. A few items are still in Progress though.
Just some notes for myself
So far the conditional found a few things
strobe light out
clean up firewall forward wiring
helicoil came out when pulling spark plug. Had to pull head and attempt to retap. That failed so now I’m having to send the head off. Really getting frustrated now.
magneto cushion needs replaced
new brake pads needed on passenger side.
just a note on the spark plug issue. I think it is my fault. I believe I didn’t put enough anti seize on the plug threads.
