The second time I wanted to talk to a guy about a head gasket replacement and he said he could even look at it until fall (it was late spring). > -----Original Message----- > From: Ralph Isenberg, III [mailto:delorean1981dmc@xxxx] > Subject: [DML] How long is too long? > > > This is by no means meant as a flame, but I'm curious.
