Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: : Glad to hear your valves were not stuck.
: : As for leded gas, yes the engine needs it, especially if you intend to drive it as your primary vehicle, the led lubes the valves in the valve guides. When I rebuilt my engine, I had hardened seats, guides and valves installed, but you may want to talk to a machine shop and ask them if you need to do all that.

: OK, so explain what I need to do, exactly... We just got our '48 CJ2A and want eventually to run it in parades and to historic events as both my husband and I are historians and have no way of obtaining leaded gas....
: Thanks for educating me!

As I said in my earlier post, talk to a machine shop, they rebuild hundreds of heads and would know better than anyone here.
