PostPost by: el-saturn » Thu Aug 15, 2013 1:09 pm

i added one off my cylinder heads to the german ebay site: http://www.ebay.de/itm/400552123964?ssP ... 1555.l2649
- if it doesn't sell in the "neighborhood" ill sell it (or try to) on ebay.co.uk. it got a bit hot at one time, so it's warped:
in the middle (lengthwise or diagonally) it' 0,15mm or 0,2mm. the camshaft bearings could, as i was told
be "prepared" to make up for the warp. it might also need line ......ing (?) = 100?. most of the valves are
missing but everything else you need (incl. the servicable cams type B: 9,25mm lift) is here. the guides and
cam f. sleeves (especially ex. side, maybe both) need replacement and there are no collets: all told 124?
at QED. valves vary in price. more photos if U want: the series 1 head i added just for you to see my current
"homework" enjoy sandy i found 15 collets to match the rest! minus 22quid!

Funny, I was on vacation too....

eBay says sold at 530 Euros, but not all sales go through.

The Ad is titled "Lotus Twin Cam Big Valve Kopf/Head", but if the head is 4.635" thick so it cannot be, Big Valve heads were 4.600" thick from the factory.

I'm looking for a Big Valve Weber head...
