ya, like emeril - BAM!
but actually, kind of anti-climactic.
it was on jackstands at the time, revving like mad. i got a spare piston anyway, no big deal.
no more paper gaskets for me though!
dremilled off the carbon on my head, scraped off and polished the cylinder and head mating surfaces, drank a few beers. i'll swap it out tomorrow.
i guess that's how it goes. you gather up your clothes and stumble out into the daylight...
