Its getting close to coming back....motor is back together...new head, valves, rockers and cam.  Front cover removed, cleaned and sealed.  Replaced 1 bad motor mount, a transmission mount, alternator mount, new fuel filter, some carb repairs, plus misc. cleanup stuff...Ken said the car was running and he was just going to retorque the head and recheck everything.  Let me say that this has been an AMAZING experience!  Ken Blasko at Vintage BMW Racing has made this an amazing experience.  He has emailed me with nearly daily pics and updates.  He has found issues with the car completely unrelated to the leak that would have made my life miserable in the future.  I'll probably have the car back soon....reports and pics then!!!  Looking forward to comparing the car with a 292 and rebuilt carb to the stock cam and a questionable carb....Next up...5 speed and 3.91!!!
