Wiki Boss 429. Any English majors?

Would someone PLEASE edit that page? It's full of info but it's written pretty poorly. I hate to admit that I couldn't do much better, but surely someone can.

The first couple paragraphs stumble around the facts like a drunken sailor.

I can edit later from a different comp. Is it factual stuff or just grammatical?

Not sure what you expect but I changed a few words around.
Better?

Not sure what you changed, but also did not think it was too bad to begin with...

A couple of bad fragments and what i thought were poorly chosen words, it could use some more but I'm not all that comfortable with the subject for a big re-write. Like the part about the head gasket and cooling is confusing but I don't know enough to write it more concisely.
If you read semi-hemispherical instead of hemi it was after my changes. Im pretty sure its more correct.

I really hate to be critical at all, since I'm not doing it and someone took the time because they thought it needed a page. It just seems that their enthusiasm outpaces their writing skills.

As for the head gasket info, I know that the S and T engines had different heads as one had the cylinder sealing ring machined in the head and one had the relief in the block, so, the two aren't interchangeable.

Here is some good info. Perhaps one of these fellows should edit.

Don't ask an english teacher to fix it. Trust me they are the worst at gramatical errors poor writing skills etc. Read any of the emails and messages that english teachers post through school mail systems etc(they are hilarious to read). Their english skills are atrocious.

Do they often forget to capitalize English?
