I'm new to the BB so excuse me if this question has been asked. I have a '84 Spider with 47K miles on it. I have an oil leak at the back left of the engine block. It looks to be coming from the mating surface between the head and the block. Per Duluth's tread of 11-12-10 all points to the head gasket, which I assumed. My questions are: How much can expect to pay to have the gasket replaced ? second: what else should I have done while the head is off? IG; skim the head, lap the valves, replace the rubber runners on the intake etc. etc. Thanks

I have retorqued the head--no help. I'm sure the leak is coming from the head to block mating surface. I took a mirror down there to be sure. It"s coming from the back left hand corner. Is there an oil gallery back there? I guess it's time to get the head gasket replaced.
