Piggys (slow) build

Recommended Posts

Removed valve guides and oil restricters from heads, tapped head with a hammer while doing guides right where the head gasket seals the cylinder, have dinged it, so that'll have to be welded and skimmed, bummer, have got new supertech guides and seals to go back in, and have had a play about with the bonnet scoop lol

Lols, just messing about with it at the mo tbh, I liked the scoop more when it didn't have the second bend in it to bring the opening down a bit cos I thort it might pull the bonnet off at speed 😜, might remake it, but first will shape those sides a bit more, probs cut it away on the top and taper the sides in at the top, then fit some ally spindles in the opening and mesh it 🙈

Valve guides are all back in, heads still measure 127.5mm so will have a little skim done, tigged up the little dint I put in it ready for the skim, and "adjusted" the scoop a bit 😜

Heads are actually still at machine shop having stud holes drilled out to 14.2mm, then off to have a small skim, next thing will be a set of supertech valves and collets, and then do valve clearances and get heads on, then we will get onto oil pump, cam belt, clutch, turbo 😳
