BURNS ON BRINK OF MENTAL COLLAPSE

MO Editor John Burns may soon need even more sedation unless he can bust loose `dem big bolts, the ones with the big Torx heads, that are holding the head onto the 2.6-liter piece of junk in his wife's 190E Mercedes.

"Everybody told me this six-banger M-B is one of the world's best engines and will run forever when the wife bought this thing. They failed to mention that's only if you replace the head gasket and timing chain every 100,000 miles," says Burns.

Any suggestions? These bolts laugh at heat, long breaker bars, and electric impact wrenches.

(PS: this has absolutely nothing to do with motorcycles)
