    Header and Ally heads

    Well, gave the header bolts 5 days of pro plus, and they came off today pretty easy. So i can get on with the reshaping of the header that is burning number 3 spark plug shoe. my next move is taking the alloy heads off. I have a slight water leak on the back of the 2 4 6 8 Head. And recently had a bit of oil showing on 1 3 5 7 Head . it may be the manifold but i don't think so. Going to use new APR bolts and APR sealer, unless any one has used any thing better. The heads may be warped so we shall see. I am not going to rush it, got all winter. Anybody used a tool to get the push rods . Ive seen one on the American sites but for what it is it seems quite expensive with postage. I take it the the alloy heads have the same torque values as normal. Oh why did'nt they design them so the front body work came right off.
