Great picks, zhandax.

At that mileage, I would suggest a compression test to determine if the head needs to be done. See my post on "1986 compression test results". Although the seals are a given. I always try the cheap thing first, but let the pro's give us the input.

For what I have read, the motor mount on the driver's side will be much easier to change with the air intake removed. I could not find the bracket you mention in any of the parts catalogs I have laying around.

From the picks I see the thin arm is the one that caused the hole in the substrate, does it excert more pressure?

Good work, please keep us posted.
