Sorted the O rings for the cooling system fittings today whilst I had a bit of down time at work with a few spares.

The plan is to sort through all our old imperial cap screw stocks and see if we have enough to make up a new set of head bolts.

Cheers mate.

TBH, I haven't made a lot of progress. I went back on shift, got sick for a few days and been playing plumber this weekend. Hopefully this week I'll have time to get it back together before my next shift later this week.

Bit of an update (or lack there off).

The exhaust valves in the other head didn't clean up as well as the first so I bit the bullet and ordered a new set of valves. Hopefully I'll have those in the next few days.

Well fuck me, thanks Covid.

My new exhaust valves arrived yesterday, only a month wait :(

Took the heads down to a local machinist to have the exhaust valve seats re-cut. Hopefully have those back by next week ready to assemble and bolt on.

Yep, very slow atm. And everything is so expensive, covid tax as I call it.

Definitely, stuff is either very hard to get or very expensive.
