    Bad news from the engineering shop. Head is cracked and is not repairable
    I see new heads available from china for 440 delivered, would these be ok? I think its unlikely to pick up a secondhand one from a breakers, have contacted a few breakers and they have sold
    their engines complete.

    A genuine exchange built up head, without cams, is 1500. The http://www.tantivy.com/?page_id=216&lang=en could be OK but I would use the AMC head

Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    What's an AMC head? I can't spend 1500 the car simply isn't worth it. After some googling I have found a s/hand one in the Netherlands and another on in the U.S.

    AMC are a respected Spainish company that makes aftermarket heads, one for your engine is around 800 for a bare unit. Do you have the special tools available for setting up the chains?

    I can't tell what that kit is, it isn't genuine, AST or Laser but I can see it is missing the TDC spark plug adapter equivalent to T10170A and a matching dial gauge plus a decent set of vernier calipers. The kit you have needs to contain equivalents to

    T10352
    T10355
    T40011
    T40243
    T40267
    T40271 1 and 2

    Yeah it's a cheapo kit I bought online just to get this job done as I'm never going to use it again. The brand name on it is ASTA. I saw on the Erwin docs I downloaded that it was missing those, but hopefully I can work
    around them.
    With hindsight the car should have been scrapped but I've gone this far with it so I will finish it.

    I can’t see you working around the dial gauge and vernier measurement, they are critical, even a ting angle change on the crank causes a big change on the gauge, there is very little dwell at TDC.

    Ok thanks, I will have another look at the timing procedure later, main problem for now is finding a head that won't cost the earth.
    Didn't get a reply from Tantivy yet, there is a guy on fleabay selling chinese heads with valves, but he won't say who manufactures them so the quality could be dubious
