lmcd314 Haven't been on FF for a while. (Busy with the car) I went ahead and bought a piston online. Slipped it in, installed new head, gaskets t-belt, and everything else. Did most if the work in one long Saturday. She is back on the road now. With about 1100 miles on the new equipment. Just did an oil change too. The egr valve got damaged by pieces of valve seat. And needed to be replaced along with new gaskets. Also had problem with fuel rail coming loose because I broke off one of the bolts. Tapped a new hole, hasn't leaked since.

02NIGHTmare I shot engine degreaser in mine about half way full and let it set for ten minutes, then hosed it out with a garden hose in the number 4 intake while it was resting on the ground and letting the water come out the number 1 intake

lmcd314 Does anyone know the best way to clean all the deposits out of the intake manifold? Other than shaking it upside-down?

lmcd314 my plan : fix it and sell it!

Red01Focus yeah for what your spending on the new head im sure you could find a complete zetec setup for the same price or maybe a little bit more, but if you stick with the spi good luck hopefully it doesn't drop again
