Parts ordered from Paddock. Rovers North wouldn't be able to get them for almost 2 weeks before shipping to me, and I waited on hold with Atlantic British for 20 minutes before giving up.

I really miss having British Pacific.

Process not described, but point is probably moot.

For example torqued the xxmm bolts 60, 30, 60 degrees and waited 3 hours between each torque and followed this order. Torqued the smaller xxmm bolts 60, 30, 30 degrees blah blah yadda yadda... Had the engine block resurfaced with a light skim of 2 thou. Head was checked and 2.5 thou removed to make it flat... and so on.

Am still at work, so don't have a manual in front of me to be exact. At least one of the published shop manuals have incorrect degree specs for torquing the head bolts. That was the info I was looking for just to double check your process and perhaps help from that approach.

Sorry you had an issue, but at least it looks like a simple repair... good luck.

Oh, I am extremely anal about the head procedure. It was followed to the Ts every single time.

No... Paddock as been good to me, as has Britcar. Never used LRDirect before... but I do like their interface. I already have Microcat so the part numbers are easy to get.

Not all TTY bolts are single use.
