The machine shop left off one of the cam end caps and the seal. I haven't pulled the heads yet. Kind of holding off until I have a gasket set and new bolts on hand. I'm really hoping I just didn't clean the mating surface well enough. With the luck I've had with this project though I wouldn't be surprised if the heads were junk and the machine shop didn't catch it.

Me too. Strangely enough, was thinking about this yesterday.
1992 Amigo S 2WD 4ZE1 5spd "Pequeña Blanca" Went on the hunt for a sensible, practical commuter car and instead I ended up buying this.

1997 Trooper S-Pep 5spd "Midori" Project car; engine rebuild currently on pause due to new job across the country.

1990 GMC Suburban R1500 SLE 350TBI "Regina" Daily driver from 2005 all the way until I bought the Trooper in 2015. Has resumed a well-deserved long nap until I can throw in an LQ4 & T56.

Haven't even pulled the heads yet. I've had so much going on this truck has been the last thing on my mind. Hopefully I'll have a free weekend to tear into it.

Especially if you gave coolant sitting on top of Pistons ... I understand the pain though ..
