Dead Head :-( .... Sorted :-)

One casualty of the Vintage stampde was Humph's PI which started blowing water/steam out the exhaust in his last event whilst chasing a RS2000. He arrived in the pits with a rather warm engine and clouds of steam out the exhaust.

He made it home in a small cloud of steam using 1litre per kilometre - that was a few top ups!!! - good old cast iron engines, Mobil 1 and a big oil cooler probably saved the engine.

Head off this evening - no mucking about - he just sent me this photo.

Number 3 exhaust port has a hole - looks like a corrosion issue. Bugger - we will chuck on my spare head tomorrow but as we know that is at least 20bhp down on my GT head something else will need to happen long term.

 Spent a few hours this morning with Humph fixing up my old head - touched up the valve seats and then bunged it back on. Found a worn follower on number one lobe - hope the cam is OK but we have a plan for that with the next head. Humph chucked a new follower in which he had left over from previous work
 Bit of Mike the Pipes famous work. These are mine but seem to be on permanent loan after I lent them to Humph to prove a point (he gained 20bhp)
Old head consigned to the boot - mostly likely scrap
