started on the engine and the only damage that i can find which needs attention is the compression.have checked the piston,rings and bore but they looked all in order. i then decided to remove tappets and when i got them out i found the exhaust valve seat burnt very badly. but this was soon put right with a hand opperated valve seat grinder.when satisfied i lapped both valves with grinding paste and refitted.must have been a sucsess as now have dificulty turning by hand on compression stroke.

John, if you don't mind, im compeled to ask, did this engine take a metal type of head gasket or the fiber type, and is the compression the normal 6 to 1 ?

this project is marching on now but only spending an hour a day when i can.new ignition coil due soon so to keep momentum going have started to paint certain items.this paint is a brush on polymer based paint which has a high gloss finish and is easy to apply.16022012762.jpg

Very sharp green paint, i can already see that this is going to come out so nice, did you use a full engine block gasket kit or made your own ?

well it is funny that you ask because with the copper gaskit which was a standard fittment for the MK 25 you could aneal it on a cooker ring and bring the softness back in the copper,so if it was not damaged you could use time and time again
