    How can you do a leakdown test if one of the rockers is broken?

    Got a borescope? Take a peak inside.

    Does the engine manually roll over? Throw a rocker on and see what happens ;D

      I forget if the B25 loses just intake or exhaust valves when the belt breaks, but probably figure in a set of (i/e) valves + machine work...or stick a known good head on and call it a day.

          You should just leave at 12 or so and sleep in. i have no interest in doing the tech session

          Drove my red car legally today for the first time in about 17 months. Has a few little bugs to work out but it's good to drive that car again.

              I thought you sold your last e30 due to a lack of space to store it though.

                        That was part of the reason. Another reason was house hunting.

                          Shoot, all the E30's are on CL today. There's a PRO3 car, a Touring, some clean verts..etc. It's like everyone is trying to sell theirs before this weekend!
