I just put the head back on my '21 after having it resurfaced. I don't know how much was removed. The machine shop was told to remove the minimum to make sure it was flat. The engine has been rebuilt about 50 miles ago. I put an old stock Victor copper head gasket on it. Nothing else was done to the engine, except an oil change. I can't describe it but the engine sounds different now, good, like before but different.
Reckon why? More compression?

The "I don't want to sell it price" just went up again on my car. Not only does it sound good but it starts better than ever. I just hand cranked it about a dozen times. Several times I only pulled the handle 10-15 degrees. The engine must have had a problem that I was not aware of before. I didn't see any sign of trouble when I removed the head but I wasn't looking very close. I'm anxious to drive it but it's too cold today.

Better compression ?

I'm with Tom.
Better compression or the expanding gasses not being somewhat wasted between the gasket and the head anymore?
Good to hear just the same!

Though it's colder than a well diggers hip pocket, I planned to drive the car today. That probably ain't gonna happen. I am hurting all over, and all under this morning. Even my moustache hurts. I will most likely spend the day in my recliner. Maybe tomorrow.

I probably won't drive the T tomorrow. The forecast is for snow tonight. It is supposed to be nice and warmer by the weekend though.
