Haven't been working on it since I popped a few screw heads off... Need to get back on it.

Yeah, the face looks to be in great shape. I believe those were made by Michigan wheel and re-branded. I've got lenses if those scratches won't buff out.

Trey,

Try using MAP gas instead of propane, burns hotter and heats the metal a lot quicker.

Jumping my problems over to my thread instead of the other one!

The two screws on the left are originals, the one on the right is a replacement I believe. There are 8 replacements in all on the side bypass cover. All of the originals came out fine with an impact driver (the kind you hit with a hammer) but two of the replacements have popped their heads. I haven't tried working on the other 6 replacements recently. Been too busy, and all I have is a little butane torch.

Gasket question for the motor experts...

For the Head gasket, does it need to be sealed with "Perfect Seal #4" type sealant since it's in the 'hot' section of the power head?
