The manual just says that they need to be replaced. Or at least that's what I thought it said . . . I'll take another look I suppose.

AutoZone didn't have them, AdvanceAuto doesn't list it on their website (neither did AZ, for that matter), and Napa didn't show anything either. Any other suggestions?

Oh also--in my Haynes manual, it says to use Perfect Seal in both sides of the gasket, but I read in another guys's write-up not to use anything. Why should I/should I not use the sealant?

Right on. I'll just proceed with original plan. I should be able to have it fluxed and cut in a day if they originally said the valve job would take a day, so I'll take it in tomorrow and hopefully...

Oh yeah, the fan's going to be PULLING air out, rather than blowing toward the engine.

Ah I see. Yeah, I'll probably do it out in the garage with the jeep pushed halfway out the door, and a giant shop fan on.

Ok, cool. I'm glad to hear that it sounds like most of you think the block's okay.

Can you explain why I'm...
