Headgasket failure, probably failed between the two cylinders and a water jacket.

What exactly do you mean by dead cylinders? Are the plugs just not firing, are they not getting fuel? Try to describe exactly what's going on.

Moneymaker,
Those two cylinders are not adjacent to each other. Cylinder 5 separates them. What about the wires?

not yet, but soon. It has the front clip off of it now, putting in a tubular k-member.

Who built the tubular k-member? I'd really like to see some pics of that.

I had a local frame shop that makes modified circle track car frames make it. It cost me about 800 but I lost about 150 lbs. I think, haven't weighed the factory one yet. I'll post pics when I get it totally installed (still welding on bracets as I go...)

Yeah, as soon as you can get some pics please post them or email them to me at [email protected]. I've been thinking about making one, so I'd like to see some finished ones for ideas.

Thanks
