Well I pulled off the bridges tonight. Happy to say it all looked good. Real good in fact. With all the advice given to me on here I think I know now what direction I am going to go.
Going to order new nuts and washers for the heads so that bulletin is done. Need a couple of shims to get the valves back in spec. Then re assemble cams/bridges and do the rest of the leak down test and rad test. Hopefully at that point i can just order the rest of my parts needed and not have to order any head gaskets. So far so good. But as with any project like this, if its to good to be true, well you know the rest.
