Hey Ed, Been there, I hate that hopeless feeling. I'll be praying that it's "minor". You and Stevey have had many challenges and you seem to always rise to the occassion. Here's hoping.

 Mike, hoping its minor but planning for major.   Matt, we opted for a motel this time. Dave, thanks for the thoughts.  Don't think they got it out today, it was an hour before quitting time when we were there and he was having issues with a bolt or two or a couple of connections not co-operating.....only talked for a minute as i did not want to hold him up.

I am with you Boomer old school but has been done that way for 75 years, I would have never let them pull the engine JMO it probably will cost Ed 1000 bucks for that outfit to pull the engine. Most of the time when a outfit gets one one floor you can put your head between your legs and kiss your @$# and wallet good by  Roll Eyes

No offense but, Maybe these things( which are great advice) should have been said as advice when Ed said ," they are going to pull the engine tomorrow" instead of after they already have. Just saying!... Wink
If that is ever me please say those things earlier, LOL

Clifford he already asked you for a bucket of your worthless cash, And have you sent that yet, No I would imagine Not!...

GM's and I think some MCI's may be like vw's.  It is easer to pull the engine to do any work.

I know that you cannot get to the back head on huggy with the engine in .

It is the drivers side that lost the valve, on my 5A the 4 air filters and housing are in the way.....not a lot of room in the 5s anyway.  Stopped by at noon, (almost 2 now) and they had it out and said to come back at 4 and they will have it apart and we will be able to see what we need to do. Hoping it is just the one hole and a reman head situation.  Dave, it would probably cost me more to have a bucket or barrel of Cliffords worthless cash shipped to me, than what he could put in it! Grin   Clifford, i have kissed my a$$ goodbye more than once in my life and i don't carry a wallet anymore, just a money clip. Cheesy   I am prepared for the worst and if it turns out to be less  then that will be fine.

How many miles is on the engine Ed I thought it was low mileage or a fresh rebuild when you got it ? Those engines are not bad about dropping valves unless the bridge adjustment is off or it breaks a bridge stand and most of the time that it is caused by human error


good luck hoping the best for you
