Is this the same problem you reported in this thread?

Strange change of tack too.

A few options:

1. Recon engine fitted

2. Replace damaged valves, guides etc & bottom end shells

3. Source good 2nd head & replace bottom end shells

No3 prob being the 'cheapest' option


*edit - just seen the two posts above :think: *
