That price is a bit high, I think they ought to bring it down to ?10,000 because the hammer head is badly distorted.

Well now Bill points out the hammer is not in good condition I think this one represents better value as the hammer is better and there are a few more tools ......obviously Ferrari's also break down :lol:

I'M BACK

I expect you have all been wondering where I have been, these past 24 hours.

Well, since Brian posted up the link to that rather reasonably price Ferrari tool kit, it got me thinking, I had one of those years ago, from my early days in Prancing Horse ownership. I searched high and low, unable to sleep, and ta dah.......... I have found it.

May the sun always shine on your kishkes Types 26/36. That Big Valve head that you wanted from me, will now be free. I had no idea that that old, grotty yellow jack, that I threw into my cesspit 20 years ago, was worth so much money. And after much digging out and hoseing off, is now resplendent and going on Ebay, for a mere ?8k, as I no longer have the lead mallet. That got melted down and sprayed gold when the precious metal hit all time highs in 2013.

I shall be contributing to LE.N from my beach side condo in future.

Toodle pip.

Leslie
PS.The offer of a free BV head expires 30 seconds after this posting goes live :lol:
PPS. No Ferrari that I have ever owned has broken down. They are a little like Elans, service them right, and they go right.

Leslie, you know you are not good with computers......you have the WRONG TIME set!
...and even if it were right you have to allow for the time difference and your slow internet connection in that backwater you call home :lol:
.....now STOP trying to weasel out of a deal..... you of all people who is the "elan.net consumer champion!"
Just bring the head to Combe where I will give you the parts I have been storing for you .....and I wont even charge you for the storage!
........and in an act of good faith I may arrange a days tuition in cam timing setting.
