Not much room in the engine bay for me. I wonder if I can get the 3v to fit in there... only have an extra inch or so of clearance with the 2v though so I doubt it.

Well, I've bitten off more that I can chew. Upon attempting to drill out a stubborn stud on the passenger side, I was extremely negligent, and arguably did the worst thing I could have done. I drilled way too deep and hit a water pocket.
Now I have to decide what to do next. I've been given many repair suggestions, but I'm told the best method is to replace the head.
Can anybody share some experiences or suggestions with replacing the head?

A link to a head replacement forum might be helpful too. Thanks.

I would just put a set screw in there with liquid teflon. Then adjust the length of the bolt.
