Was told to mention that I have this head for sale,in the XK engine thread.
This head was fitted to a xk 3.8 engine that I recently bought, and it is surplus to requirements, I’ve added some pictures but it is on the classifieds. I’ve not done anything with it other than remove it from block. The engine was stood for a while, and you can see from pics which chambers the valves were open on.
When I said move it to the xk engine section I was referring to your engine rebuild topic. This won’t hurt being here as well, but when you do start moving on with the rebuild of the boat start a new thread here. It is an interesting topic we are enjoying following.
