You might be interested to know that the cylinder head on that engine you bought was a replacement reconditioned head less that 10K miles ago....

It snapped its cam belt and bent some valves, and a reconditioned head was sourced by me. Rest of the engine was fine. Mileage is genuine. New starter a few hundred miles ago also.

It's not often we read a post-mortem by a one-time owner.
These aren't cars, for many of us, that just come and go, but tend to leave lasting impressions. :|
