I’ve got one……but stored in place that is hard to reach with car in garage.

I’ll worry about that when needed!

Been off work last couple of days so done a few more bits.
First was lapping the exhaust valves in……seats needed cutting really but starting off with coarse paste and elbow grease got them done

Inlets all looked reasonable so didn’t spend long on them

Also removed the hotspot tube between 2 and 3……..apparently helps a lot with cooling. Was proper tight to get out though

All valves done so gave them a wet test. Refitted valves and springs then fill combustion chamber with water and blow with compressed air from behind

Bit of a setback here……numbers 1 and 3 leaked a little so had to remove and lap them a little more.
Cleaned up all springs and finished building up……head now all done so next will be just cleaning up bits and pieces for assembly.
