One of the lads at work did it (work in a Truck / van dealership) and I just paid him cash in hand. Doh! We had the head skimmed at the time but cant remember if it was pressure tested. It was a full headset too, Payen if I remember correctly. with new Timing belt. (after I had the Timing belt kit etc fitted not long before that)
Ive had it checked and "sniff" tested, apparantly its pressurising too fast and the sniff test said the gasket had gone.
It will idle fine though, but will boil the coolant after 5 miles. (was stuck in the highlands when it went!) compared to last time the headgasket went, when the coolant would dissappear and the oil level would increase and clouds of white smoke would come from the exhaust. Its not doing any of that now.
TBH now ive got the Subaru as the main daily driver I am just going to put the normal wheels on and stick it on ebay. and sell my alloys seperatly. (no there not black speedlines - sorry)
Disappointing i know, but need to get rid and hopefully make a little bit of money back on the whole job.
Thanks for all your help though guys.
