    Blew the head gasket. Figured out why. Now about to reassemble the head to the block.

    This is probably an obvious answer to some of you, but I’m curious; is it necessary to adjust the exhaust valves once the engine is assembled? Or can I just adjust the intake valves? I ask because nothing in the block has changed. Whereas the adjustments on the head have.

    If they were good before they should still be fine.
