If that's one of the head plugs leaking I have seen one changed with the engine in situ.

Hi Everyone

Jim and I took SCV for a run round the UK.... she still had a few minor problems which have been sorted:

Header blowing, water system running to hot, coil giving probs, few electrical probs "Bad Earth" what else !!! Alternator not charging, engine getting fluffy missing when hot (but only after hr running)

After producing a snag list we have been through everything including adjusting the timing She nows runs like a dream.... Apart from tappets so I have ordered a set of roller rockers from Essex Engines, uprated springs Burton, screw in studs which once fitted Ill be happy...

Now just the detailing Paint, Door alignment, replace the carpets, where I had to modify the transmission tunnel to install OD box from SE6

Massive effort by the team.. RESULT very very nice early 5.... See you all at the shows in due course

Back on the other cars now MYD and WB car.... Next resto will be Don Pithers old car where well go for 100pts/Concourse and a keeper

The Car maybe a Le Mans but I will not be the driver... Keep you posted
