Engine Diagnosis

Well, Andy took the head off and was very impressed - I'd manage to bend all 16 valves :-(. Normally the belt snaps but in my case it had been tougher than that and continued to pile the valves into the pistons.

The pistons were marked, but serviceable so there is no bottom end work needed.

Very, very kindly, Dave Andrews offered to supply me with a fresh set of valves so these have been sent to MMM. In the meantime the head is going for a bit of fettling before it all gets put back together in time for Rockingham.
