    Good news, Folks! The engine builder came over to have a look at the damage. He was happy that the rods were OK. He told me to check the valves by doing the following: rotate the cam until the valves were closed on each cylinder in turn. Fill the ports with petrol and watch for leakage.

    All were watertight, except the inlet on #1 cylinder, which wept ever so slightly, which is still good to go.

    I am waiting on a head gasket, and will fit it ASAP. Now I just gotta remember where everything goes

    Thanks, TD. The engine builder port and polished the head, then used his vacuum test bench for maximum flow.
