Well, it failed the bubble test and starts to overheat once I get on the highway at speeds above 50 mph. I just had about 3,000 dollars done on the air conditioner, distributor, igniter, complete rewiring of the electrical system, driveshaft, radiator flush and engine tune up. With the advice of my mechanic, I had most of this work done in hopes that it would stop the overheating problem. I don't know as much as most of ya'll do about cruisers but I do know that I don't want to drive anything else for the rest of my life. I will not be able to afford to do a head gasket job for a long time and am getting huge pressure from the misses to get rid of it. Does anyone have any light they could shed on the subject? What are the percentage chances of it being the hg and what is it worth without a new hg? 1993, 196,000 miles, no lockers, all stock.
