just a small update:

parts arrived. cleaned as good as i could with a screw driver (without scratching) and cleaned the base of the piston with a sandpaper (gently)

replaced the head + gasket but couldnt test the motoer yesterday :/ still need to place the metal that holds termometer as i didnt have some instant gasket. will continue next saturday and leave it running for about a quarter of an hour to test.
