Valve stem seals and head gaskets.

It was a rough old lump but easy to work on. Don't think I'd do a cam-belt as quick as Dave but not far off. Loved the lumpy idle with a really wild cam

It was easy to work on, which itself meant everyone and his monkey would have a go. I can remember one local lad bringing back a Fast Road cam and hydraulic lifters, due to a failure on all eight lobes. After a very brief inspection, we realised he's fitted the lifters upside down, Oh how we still laugh
