Have been very remiss about posting photos so here are a few.
These were taken by Jean-Paul of JNL Racing who did the headwork for me.

Unfortunetly I do not have pics of the finished head with the cams in etc.
Because when I picked it up it was wrapped in cling film and told not to open it until I was putting the engine together!
Which was simply to keep dirt etc. getting onto the bearing surfaces!

Here is a view of the head, partly opened by me to paint the front to give you some idea of the amount of clingfilm on it!

An end view of the assembled engine ready to go back in


Shows the vernier pulley!

And here is another view of the assembled engine and gearbox prior to hoisting in.



And ready to hoist!

Bit annoyed that I cant find some photos! I know I took some of the flywheel that spikenipple did for me.
I have the before pics but not the finished ones!
