TECH­NI­CAL DIF­FI­CULTY?

HOW LONG?

The ac­tual span­ner­ing takes only 2-3 hours but you will have to wait overnight for gas­ket sealant to go off be­fore bolt­ing ev­ery­thing up.

COST?

We were a lit­tle taken aback at the price of solder these days. Eleven quid for a small reel of 1mm resin core. Ridicu­lous. A gen­uine head gas­ket for the TDR was £30. Gen­uine base gas­kets are £16 each while pat­tern ones are a more rea­son­able £3.50. A gen­uine head gas­ket is a good idea. Pat­tern base gas­kets are per­fectly ad­e­quate.
