Head Gasket Epilogue

The car is still running very well. It isn't using any coolant and seems to have good power.

It is in the shop now, I'm having the oil pan gasket replaced. After trying to do the job myself while the head was off, I decided to treat myself and have someone else do it. It was seeping pretty bad, so I decided to do it now instead of later.

I just received the core refund back from the company I bought the head from. They told me that the head was cracked from one of the water jackets to a valve seat on the number 3 cylinder. That makes sense to me since I was pretty sure that the number 3 cylinder was where the leak was. That bubble in the head gasket probably had nothing to do with it leaking.
