Infact if memory serves, twas you! :D

Ok, one grey, working glovebox is available that can be sprayed black!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Still trying to remove head. I have removed timing belt and 10 head bolts, thermostat and manifolds, but bloody thing still feels solid! Every metel bar I have used has broben or bent. I have tried to shock head with mallet but still no luck. Am I missing something? (apart from skill) Any suggestions welcome as other car terminally ill and on life support(daily injections of oil and water - not into same orifice!) thanks, Martyn

There is some bolts in the end of the head (timing belt end) which bolt and hold the large alloy casting on.
They think it's all over, it is now!

Finally got head off with the loss of time, temper and blood. I have found very small cracks on the precombustion? chambers. Is this terminal? Does anyone have a head for sale if it is? Otherwise can I just chance it? Any advice appreciated.
