Re: Choices, Choices...

Ohhhh yeah, I've seen it!  Happened to me when I had my last engine 
(1641cc).  Except it was my #3 valve.  It's call a burned valve.  It 
happened to me in Denver, Colorado, as I was making my way home to Oregon 
from South Carolina.  Made it home on three cylinders, though!  She's a 
total babe :)

As for reworking the old block I kinda recommend a 2.0L... ;)

About 4 months ago I dropped a rebuild into my III, and it's doing
great. 10 hours in a parking lot with 2 railroad ties, 2 come alongs, and
a skateboard paid off.  In any case, I did it because of the absolute
frustration I was having with the other.  I felt like I had lost 1 or two
cylinders.  I had lost two come to find out.  No. 4 and Number 2 (counter
opposed), the exhaust valves appeared as though someone had to take a
bite out of them.  Anyone seen this?  Have any idea why?
   In anycase, I have a solid block, good pistons, etc., and I was
wondering what lind of ripper I should build with the old block.  Anyone
have any suggestions?  I am planning on replacing the trany anyway.
