I'm not touching the thing, the thing scares me. Gotta back away.
Several years ago, after finishing several years of work on my Series, I got it back on the road... two weeks later, the main bearings on the engine went out. So, I'm having flashbacks, nightmares, and PTRS - Post Traumatic Rover Syndrome.
But I am doing little bits of research on my options, as much as my psyche can handle, and I hope I can get some direction from people who have been here, done this, and found some way to be successful.
- NEW head?
- Reman'd head?
- Give up and sell?
Honestly, it's not like we are doing bad financially, we both work full time, but I can't keep going at this rate. At some point I will have to give up and sell. I'm not sure when that is, but I suspect it is close.
I would love to do the job myself, but I know something will go wrong, and it will take 3-6 months even if nothing does. And even if I hire out, I'm afraid that as soon as it's done, I'll end up with some other problem, the whole thing will have to be dismantled, and I'll need a new transmission, or piston rings, or... something.
Something has to give, but I can't just give up on a 20 year dream! Sheesh!
Am I missing some kind of special prayer or ceremony that I don't know about?
