that I opened up the valve cover to find a head bolt missing... If I were to find this: put a new head bolt on? Get the head replaced? ...? How will I know if its warped?

Here's a picture depicting the situation at hand:

Getting the old headbolt out is the deciding factor.

If the head gasket has not been blown it is good.

Many headbolts have been found broken and replaced.

Well, I know its not blown... Looks like I got work to do! Hopefully, the headbolt won't be in there/will be easy to get out.
