Whew, glad to hear that, I was concerned. Are you building contingency plans?

Honestly, I do not have any idea what I would do if everything works out.

If the head is bad, here is a remanufactured one: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/vre-2538/overview/

Car-part.com shows an HX head for $150 in Phoenix, one for $163.35 in Yuma, and one in Tucson for $300. I cannot find any heads through LKQ, but it only seems to show whether they have the inventory at that location. RockAuto has a head for $475.77 shipped.

RockAuto. Yay.

Jegs has one for $620. https://cylinderhead.com has one for $350 (+ shipping). AutoZone has one for $580.

I do not know how much another D16Y5 engine would cost, but it would be far more complicated than just the head, and I am sure that would be the end of this project.

If it works out, put it back together. It's not rocket surgery or brain science, it's automotive mechanics, which at one time everyone knew how to do, back in the medieval times of my youth.

I've never seen everything work out for you. if I ever did, I would assume that your account has been hacked and flag it so Darin can lock out an obvious impostor.

Ouch, that's harsh, but true.

Hope we turn around that luck Xist!

I admire perseverance over quick success, probably because that's what I'm lacking. Often I'm successful in what I set out to do fairly quickly, so I don't handle setbacks well.

I would have an easier time if I just made fewer mistakes.

I was not able to start this month's schoolwork earlier because I kept taking care of work e-mails after finishing my progress reports. I read six chapters yesterday, watched two hours of lecture, and took my quiz yesterday before seeing my afternoon clients, but I read the textbook, watched the lectures, and missed the quiz today because I did not realize daylight savings already started.

My professor expressed her sympathy, which is worth more than 95 points if you are insane.

Maybe I should have waited another week to work on my head gasket.

Wikipedia says this changed in 2007 and The U.S. Department of Energy determined the nation used 0.03% less energy the first year they extended daylight saving.

U.C. Santa Barbara determined that Indiana used 1% more electricity--less lighting, but more heating and cooling. They chose Indiana because most of the state did not observe daylight saving beforehand: https://www.nber.org/papers/w14429.pdf

A possibly loaded question: have you gotten your head together yet? Unless they are beyond typical flakey, the shop should be done by now.

Seems like a lot for a cylinder head, considering it's possible to get complete low mile "low desirability" Honda engines for $3-500.

I do not know if you can get Insight engines for that much. I know that you can get boring Civic engines, but the D16y5s that I have found always went for much more.

The machine shop said it would take a day or two, but I was busy talking to the office about getting new clients, and then trying to prepare for three quizzes and a test in four days.

That was Sunday, I called the shop Monday morning, and they said it was ready. They don't inform customers?

The head bolts that I ordered last Wednesday (please allow 2 - 4 business days for shipping) started processing on Monday (please allow 2 - 4 business days for shipping), and allegedly shipped yesterday, but clicking on their link does not give me any shipping information.

I looked it up myself and it has not shipped yet.

Yay.

It looks like it takes at least two weeks to get nuts and bolts from Coconut Point Honda in Florida.

Edit: This is the only HX engine that I can find: https://buyusedengine.com/used_engin...20Transmission

Over $1,000, plus $200 to ship... and it says it is for an automatic transmission. What difference does that make? Does that mean it does not have lean burn?
