Re: Are the supplier's "v8 STYLE pressure plates" really for tractors?

I guess the best thing to do before buying is to ask and be sure. I think the better shops will sell the correct parts or at least be upfront about their products.

Re: Tight Valve Guides

You might have saved a lot of headaches by letting the machine shop do some of the assembly work. I had thought you were talking about the valve to guide fit.

Re: Cracked head- pic

That is an early head on a later block. You could re-use it or find another original head, or as others have said if you have good bearings buy a new head.
