Well coming up on 2 1/2 years later and things are still on the good side over here. Don't know how many miles I've put on it, not too many really, somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 I would have to guess.

-Head gasket from the forklift supplier is holding strong (it's an OEM gasket (with OEM part number), just not from Toyota Automotive).
-Engine is holding strong. It doesn't burn an appreciable amount of oil (every once in a while I might have to put some in, but it's a small amount and it's random). It could probably pull hills and such better, but considering it's an unbalanced engine with a little over 200,000 miles on it, it's been through all that junk above, and only has a little over 100 psi compression, I think it does pretty darn well.

I do end up with oil in the air cleaner housing though. From what I gather that is a sign of blowby and excessive crankcase pressure, which ends up with a lot of oil vapor condensing in the air cleaner. So someday the engine will need to some work. But in the mean time I've gone to CM '07, Ouray '07, CM '08, GTR '08, GTR '09, and a lot of other trail runs and driving in the winter time and it's been great!

I keep reading threads by Trollhole and others on MUD though...

I don't like how threads in MUD close automatically now...

You can ask Woody to re-open them if you want to past back to them.

Yes, I have done so for a few, just adds another layer to trying look up relevant material.
What is harm in leaving them open?
Just not a very customer-centric approach.
