back together now and a little sprightlier but not for long i can spin the valves in their seats by holding the springs and twizzling.setting the clearances ,the screwdriver on the rocker was opening the valves without any effort. still runnning though and better than before amazing.lockdown has mae us here closer than ever. hope you are all okay.learnt how to play     bring me sunshine       on the uke today.   and it does take care

For quality work on old engines, Park engineering in malton, north yorkshire takes some beating, rebores, crank grinds, etc, they know what they talk about and can do the work to a standard rarely found in this day
