I bought the car with a blown head gasket. When I took the engine apart I found that both head gaskets were blown. I had the heads resurfaced with a valve grind and new seals. I'm a teenager with no prior experience but my brother who works for nascar is coming out to help me but I don't know if I need to change the piston rings and rod bearings.I realy don't want to have to do that because it's especially hard on the '96 mustang. If I have to replace the piston rings and rod bearings I will need to drop the entire front suspension system and that is a lot of work that I'd rather not do unless absolutly necessary. When the owner grenaded the engine both gaskets went so I don't think he was running the engine with antifreeze in it so that's why I'm wandering if I need to change the rings and rod bearings.
