Re: Bent valves and wiped cam?

The used jeep dealership he bought it from, where he bought the warranty also, picked the shop when they figured out it was internal (head gasket). The machine engine rebuilder shop has been in business maybe longer than I have been around, not a fly by night shop, but not the gold standard shop either (or at least they were not 30 years ago). But frankly there are so many bloody engines and rigs around now days, finding a quality expert is rare, crap shoot. From what little I have read the engine, the engine itself is not bullet proof like I am use too.
