Have some spare time on my hands now.. so hopefully I will man up and do some work on this thing!

Today spent what seemed like ages getting the old valve stem oil seals off! Not sure if there is a special tool for doing this or if it is just a case of long pliers and pull like hell lol! either way they were burried inside the head so not much access to do it easily. Got there in the end though.

The awkward bits

Also reset all the hydraulic tappets so they are nice and soft for when it does eventually get to the stage of turning the key

Tomorrows job is grind in the valves, fit new valve stem oil seals and see about putting the head back together, cams ect.

The mornings job was to grind in the valves with some grinding paste and with the worlds most usless grinding stick it took 3 times as long, but they all cleaned up ok. Then fitted the new valve oil seals once they were all ground in.

This did not go down well at home lol! but it was too cold and dark to get the little collet rings back on the valves out in the workshop Laughing

Still moving along with this slowly. Had a new oil pump for ages but finally got round to swapping over the drive gear and the oil pick up pipe. Suprisingly large amount of little peices of silicone stuck in the mesh filter, flushed the pick up through with some diesel and got it all cleaned up though.

Its boring i know but im trying to keep a thread about it as a bit of history for if i sell it.. Laughing

Make sure you get a metal impellor water pump instead of the plastic one, as there known to fail sometimes.
