  • in reply to: The original Thickness of the V8 head #1129

    The original thickness is 3”. The factory originally said they could be skimmed by 10 thou, and it has been suggested that 20 thou is quite ok. Indeed I have seen 100 thou mentioned but that would be a brave man.

    The other point to consider is that if too much is taken off, the inlet manifold bolt holes will not line up, although of course they can be enlarged. I also believe that thicker head gaskets have been used.

    Best wishes

    They look somewhat like the seats from Newton Commercial. I fitted these in my SP five years or so ago.
    I can highly recommend them.

    They are not cheap but fit straight onto the existing sear runners and fold forward to allow a tonneau to be fitted.

    Thanks Tim
    Nice to know you are up and running.
    Obviously the security can be a bit of a pain but I think it is worth it.
