wow.. i'm amazed at the amount of help i get on here. it's almost like having real friends =)

i think i'll just go with an insert until i can buy a new head. i was dying for a ride yesterday so i used some teflon tape. it worked fine for the first few miles, then i lost compression. i just happened to break down at a bar, so i had a beer and called my wife for a ride. okay it wasn't a beer, it was hard lemonade, i'm a sissy.

thanks again for the help.
