Cylinder Head removal

Well I managed to get the head of the engine today, all of the cylinders are in good condition, there is some coke on the piston crowns and the cylinder head needs a good de-coke, and likely the valves re-ground and the tappet shims re-doing.

The whole lot could also do with a good steam clean, will see if i can find somewhere to clean the block and head and also give the cylinder a de-glaze, to get everything back to new..

Hone-marks still in cylinders!

I've ordered a bunch of cleaning a painting supplies from Frosts which will allow me to progress through the various components and get them back to new.

At this point its looking good.
