Is there anyone within 100 mile of Preston, lancs that can fly cut some heads. Got a pair of heads cut for 90.5 that have damage to the squish area in the chambers. It would have to be a while I wait deal. I don't want to use a courier service .I've had parts damaged/lost/stolen  in the past.

I reckon Danny at Reichspeed will be around 100 miles from Preston. Not sure if he can flycut heads, but his Facebook shows lots of machining work. Might be worth giving him a call to see if he can help. Found him helpful and easy to talk with, and would use him again. He's done maintenance, engine/gearbox swap and valve seats for me but no other head work, so I can't comment further than that.
Hope that helps,
Dave.

If it breaks (and it probably will).... it's time for an upgrade...

Still need this job doing so I can move forward with it. I might do it myself. I have a cut down piston top with a through rod into the middle of the crown. I can glue sand paper to the crown , fit and old cylinder and spin it with a drill.
