Default Left Bank Smoking

Hi All,
Just wondering what is the availability of parts to have my heads rebuilt . I'm assuming this is now necessary since the left bank is beginning to smoke pretty bad.
Thanks

Kanter.com and ebay both have head gaskets. Pistons are hard to find now, but alot of other parts are availabe.

I also had a smoking problem mostly at idle I picked up a upper rebuild kit with head gaskets and valve guides around $45 from rock auto.com... But the valve guides are only rubber "O" Rings. If I was to redo again I would have matched the size and picked up 6 "O" Rings for a couple bucks.

Also has anyone attempted using newer style valve guides caps from a 350 or 454 heads ????? my smoking problem did stop for a few months but is slowing coming back Hope this helps you
