Update time Very Happy

Whiped the head of today, after finding the right multispline bit, block was a bit pitted, but only between water jackets, Pot 1 was a bit to clean so its kinda ovious thats ware it was gone.




Any yea i no the pics arnt great, i just whip out the phone when i feel like taking a pic, and my phone isnt exactly a iphone!

Yea dashworth come round and polish the ports on my head if you want? lol
