I have sent my heads off to a company called Microgiant to have a bit of work done on them. I know I need new valves, but I also wanted them checked over and ready to bolt straight on when I get them back.

I have also sourced a fan strap so I have started playing around with the fan positioning. I have decided that I will use some thin galvanised metal that I have to cover the breather tower under the fan, probably glued on. I will then put a rubber sheet on that which the fan can sit on. I will also support the fan from the middle, down to the engine case, just to keep things rigid.
