Besides Ebay, where to look for Salvage engine parts?

Specifically, Head, Cylinder and attached components

Cylinder head doesn't look bad. Go to the auto parts store and plasti-gauge it.

 

If you have an expensive head and the journal is off you can always send it to Engine dynamics in Petuluma Ca... The can re machine it.

It's pretty bad. The journal haves are oval-ed out.

Piston just has normal wear, and will be replaced anyway.

Cylinder is fine.

Engine Dynamics should be able to repair that head. How did that happen? Over torqued cam cap bolts?

I am going with a new head, as their repair of the head and tower would be more than the new head.

 

The radiators ran out of water.

Cracked the radiator seam, and it seeped out so slowly I never noticed it or smelled it.  

The 1.6 radiator cap failed to open.

 

I now have OS radiators and will be putting on a new 1.3 cap, and running new, non-collapsible hosing to the overflow tank.
