What is your question?

Roy

Is it better to just get a new used engine or just fix gasket

When they remove the head it has to be checked, in my expierence, I have replaced the heads in most cases from cracks and that drives up the bill big time.

A good used engine would be a better choice

Roy

Even if its JUST a gasket not cracked head cause there is no white smoke or antifreeze or oil water mix
