Thanks again to Turtle for popping buy, managed 95% of it but 2 mangled head bolt involved an angle grinder. And before anyone says anything I had the right RIBE bit too, was not bodging it...
So, head is off, I will do photos tomorrow but seems like I have a burnt exhaust valve causing the lack of compression...
So, worth doing 1 valve, doing them all or just getting a new head. The cylinder walls look ok but how on earth do you know. My only confidence is the fact that all pistons and combustion chambers are the same colour...
So,throwing it out there, what's the plan of attack... Recon head and move everything over?
Do you need to clean the carbon off the cylinder tops? What else should I be doing?
Thanks all those for advice, think I'm winning!
Final got the GTV... Now the fun of fixing and driving it begins!!
