That's a bugger Bibs. It's awfully convenient there being an engine in Vince's garage though, with his abilities and all. :D

Bibs here's something that should raise a smile. When I saw the title of the thread I read it as Bix ???? after I'd read it through and put my ten pennyworth in I was thinking Bix why the [ Dyslexic swearing ] Bix? it was only after I'd put my reading glasses on that I realised you had put Blx. That made sence.
Your having a shit day and I,m having a Durr one. :/  :/

Yup - fingers crossed I have a new head for about £100, just need to know where it originated from. Don't ask how  :whistle:   pressure test for mine is about £50 or so I think so sacking that and buying the head.  Saving on labour too. This is the cheapest (hopefully the best) option atm. If all else fails Hiroler an Bio have engines for sale  :D

Hmmm... potentially dodgy head as opposed to an engine from someone whos adress is known by all, and who has knees which can be damaged like anyone elses :D

I used to live on the Wirral, (so not a true scouser) and bought my first house in Neston. When I was there Chester was the toffs place.
Used to "work" @ Vauxhalls Ellesmere Port.

from the Wirral :D

What 'we' call a plazzy (plastic) scouser. :lol:

That's it. If the head had looked perfect, that would have been of more concern than it looking buggered. :D
