That's okay Leroy. I was actually trying to reach you to make sure you didn't get any more parts for me, lol, as I picked up the rest myself from a few places. Cheers.

I used a smear of RTV blue on the rocker cover in the 'loose' areas - when it slightly set it held the gasket on perfectly, particularly around the rear area.

have fun with the back most bolts on the inlet oh i had fun with those!lol.
A custom ring spanner with a dogleg makes this p*ss easy - particularly on EL's because they have the square engine harness connector bracket sitting between inlet branches 4 & 5 - just to add to the fun.

Lads, is it an issue if a exhaust bolt refuses to go into the head? Just one bolt, bottom row, 3rd from the left.

It may cause a small exhaust leak. Be careful trying to do them up, remember you are only threading into an alloy head. Best way is to do them all up by hand only then tighten them evenly.

it will cause a small exhaust leak.

I remember when i took the heat shield off my exhaust for the first time and ran it missing the two bolts, it made a noticable effect on idle quality.
