Thanks Larry and steve.. You two have always been helpful and great..
Just another question. I see light traces of rust in the cylinders. I put oil over them and rubbed them with my hand. Would these traces of rust cause a problem after the head is back on?
I was planning on driving from South Carolina to Chicago with the car this coming Friday and I am glad it happened while I am still here is SC. I am glad I did not let the wife drive it (it's her car) after the head job. I guess will be taking the Bimmer to chicago.
