Ef reco head, chain set, guides,lifters head bolts.
All the above were fitted to an engine that ran for 2 hours .
Explanation, bought an EF with an engine noise, Thought-big ends. replaced them, still got noise. next great thought, timing chain, replaced that,guides,adjuster. still got noise.
third stroke of genius, lifters,while removing, broke a stud. (life will get better next time around, maybe I'll come back as a rock)
Got an exchange cylinder head.
Started it,STILL got noise! friend dropped in, in 5 seconds said "the gudgeons are noisy......"
Bought a 2nd hand 80K EL engine, runs great,Junked block etc. have been keeping the above stuff for spares,
The El runs like new,won't need them.
$400 the lot. No offers,Pick up only. Leichhardt NSW,

Not really,the head is complete, rockers everything, all assembled, ready to bolt on,(rocker cover as well- crackle finish black), the chain and guides etc. are things that should be done at same time.they all age at about the same rate.
(also have reciepts for over $600- trade prices)

They were new when head fitted,not even on long enough to re-torque. as mentioned above ,engine only run a couple of hours, reciepts for purchase available,(the original 12 year old headbolts probably still in my nuts and bolt bin if you wanted them as well-it's the time and pressure on them that kills them,no problem re-using the ones offered with the head. )

Actually, the head bolts are one use only bolts. They are designed to stretch, and are not meant to be retensioned.

New bolts would be the only way to go.

Yep, bolts are throw away.
I might be interested timing chain, guides and tensioner.

OK they are on the way to the tip, anything else in this sad badly designed primitive rubbish also bio-degradeable??
