Thanks Mick, I slipped a 5 though shim under the head gasket as supplied in the decoke set. Gave me 77 thou and theres 2 thou across the piston. The valves arezencustard
... Not to forget the half base gasket trick. If the lead pellets are a bit different in thickness after they are squashed, the cylinder may be brought back
Phil I am not sure how much difference it would make but not that much i would think. The Lister manual states 55 thou to 100 thou valve head below email@example.com
