After months of investigating a cold start issue and several hundred pounds it's seems I have a dodgey in let valve or spring in a brand new reckoned head which may I add I had to strip back after fitting due to them puting old hydrolic lifters back in and a valve was floating at high revs....now for the fun bit geting money back

Colin has offered me a full refund on the cost of the recon which I feel is great but I'm still several hundred pounds out of pocket with a wonky motor lol ..............

Same, Colin and andy there are top blokes with years of experience. Im guessing on this rare occasion it was inferior parts, not workmanship. Its easy to blame other people when your using a keyboard...

well I kind of agree puting one standard valve spring in and 3 up rated ones on a head running a 270 degree cam is a parts issue lol but bull shitting me they had used all old up rated springs from my blown stage 2 head but leaving one in and giving me the head back sounds sloppy to me along with not changing lifters and charging for a full recon.........sloppy corner cutters and I can't recommend them

Nice one! just saying accidents or misshaps happen. there usually mega, yeah you had a bad service and the issue was resolved, just think its a bit harsh to try and savatage someones business on an open forum...

As for your insult towards me, I took on the chin Wink
