  1. If you want to keep the bare alloy looking good, then vapour blasting will help a lot. It seems to leave a finish that dirt and oil slide off, at least on my engine, anyway.
  2. I bet he’ll be a real hoot on the after-dinner speech circuit. He’s had enough practice at stand-up.
  3. Wait, you mean that BBC thing wasn’t fake?
  4. Something to do with him doing care work or similar. I do feel he should have turned the other cheek.
  5. Chillidoggy

    QED, Anyone ?

    During the first lockdown, they supplied me a set of 910 main bearing shells. Would I use them again, yes, absolutely, they’ve got a good rep and have been around a looooong time.
  6. I see the Archbishop of Canterbury (aged 65) has jumped the vaccination queue.
  7. I think that's how Max Mosely got started.....
  8. I might have a set of the composites laying around of you haven’t got any, need to check first, though.
  9. Looking at the photos, I think the exhaust port faces will benefit from being machined. It looks even worse than mine and there’s only so much those gaskets will accept. I do hope I’m proved wrong, however it’ll then leave you free to overhaul the rest of the head......
  10. Don't forget you have @Buddsy
  11. @tomcattom - Page 5 of my refurb thread gives you the heat shield photos. I think there's more somewhere in there too if you look. Shouldn't take too long, there's nowhere near 256 pages.
  12. It's comforting to note you're not using just any old rags.
  13. Pretty sure I drove a G27 years ago, and thought it was a nice car. I was after buying a Cosworth-engined G12 years ago, but two things prevented me from doing so. 1. I couldn't quite afford it, and 2. I couldn't fit in it.
  14. You need to get out more.
  15. The steel shim gaskets are the Lotus specified for the S4s. I think the composite ones were for earlier engines, but I’m not sure. Alunox supplied me with a set of composites when I bought my exhaust manifold, but when I pointed out they were incorrect, they refused to exchange them for the steel ones. Hey ho!
