Final head work

The cylinder head is back from the machinist, and looking good. A quick coat of engine paint and Brian’s ready to reassemble it.




Minor issue: One of the heater outlet stud holes was stripped, so the machinist fitted a heli-coil for us. Unfortunately, he didn’t have any imperial heli-coils to hand, so he fitted a metric one. And it’s crooked.

Rather than go back to the machinist, we decided to fix it ourselves.
