Welcome, look forward to seeing your progress getting it running, theyíre fragile old things but worth it once theyíre up and running!

Thanks for the welcome guys.  I read somewhere that there is a PDF of a modified head torquing sequence to help with leaks? Anyone know where I can find this?

Donít worry if it takes three weeks for a reply, itís a quiet old forum, some are on faceboast and think some have just died off!
