Got some new goodies ready for when I get the head replaced

And a new lick of paint for the cam cover, going with fords stratos silver and gloss black for the plug cover ( found a way to fit the big leads under the cover without bending)





Now just need to find a suitable cambelt kit and gasket set + bolts

Got some new rims from Nigel (omega52)

They need a refubish but are perfect for now, had the boots off the deepdish (I dont think I even put 100miles on them)

It has now stopped pulling to the right and sticks to the road



Need to colour code the mirror covers and possibly look for a foglight bumper

Found a new head, third times a charm (this one is from an x18xe)  :D

Degreasing


2 of the spare cam covers degreased



The old hole'd water jacket head with the needed parts
(cams, caps and self adjusters)


Removing the needed adjusters with gravity


I recieved the gasket set and am now waiting for the cambelt kit

Then hopefuly a trip down to see Jamesv6cdx

cheers

I had a bit of hesitation and stalling on full lock while reversing and then slight misfire on start up



I stripped the TB I got with the veccy b dual tract XEV for the icav, cleaned it out and fitted it.
Also cleaned the TB and breather jet too

Last week the H-brake felt lifeless and wouldnt return when released, popped my head under the car and found the offside spring dangling, went to remove tje nearside and it just broke.
Fitted new ones and it feels tight again.
