Well, I found out why my XT has been running hot, and not idleing very well. Seems I have only 10psi of compression on the #2 cylinder. All the other cylinder's are fine. So...now I get to yank the engine again, and find out what happened. I'm guessing that the new head gasket either got damaged when I was reassembling, or it was defective when I bought it. Coolant leaks out of the driver's side from somewhere too, which is why I suspect the gasket...although I suppose the head could be cracked.

Anyway, should I document this? I have both a digital camera and a video camera. Would anybody be interested is seeing how this is done?

Let me know.

Well, last time I did it, I took 3 years...I'm not doing that this time. I hope to have it done in a weekend. No reason I can't, unless it's a crack in the head.

I'll charge up the extra capacity battery for the digital camera, and have at it then.
