Just came across this ad while trawling Gumtree. Genuine Overlander?
I have an old angle grinder in the shed to....
This is a clean and wiped stainless steel valve for a dedicated gas engine (202 blue)
I have lapped with course, medium then fine grit compound and this is the result.
I spent a minute or so on each application (Total 3min Lapping)
I have noticed that only 2 3rds of the machined edge has evidence of grinding, I am guessing this is correct and ok, to allow for future lapping.
All carbon was removed from seats and valves before lapping.
Please share your thoughts. I have 11 more to do. The petrol test will soon show if I have a good seal or not.
Would any body out there be able to tell me what site I could look up to find what colour interiors they put into Wb Statesman 83 models, and find matching colour to trim numbers on plate under the bonnet.
Well, I joined the 1 Tonne Brigade..

After 25 years or more, I finally got to drive the ole HK kingswood out the gate and on the roads...
Got a temp permit from Vic Roads for a couple of weeks to get things sorted for the road worthy. And last weekend I took her for a spin.
Started well and after a few minutes (about10) of warming up... I was able to take the old bus for a run. Engine sounded a bit funny, but fingered it just needed to have the GUNK burnt out!
Was very careful as the car had not been driven for 25 years or more!
After about 6 miles, all going well I thought, I decided to drop in to a mates place to show him the old girl running!
Drove up.... First thing he said was .... That doesn't sound right... Pop the bonnet! A few seconds later he said switch her off..
