Work i have done:

Engine head

The head  of the engine was also disassembled. Four of the valves were not tight as I filled petrol in the intake and exhaust ports. So all valves and their seats in the head were milled (10*5$) to be sure that no further problems accrue. The valve stem sealings (10*2,5$) were renewed for they get hard during the years and so oil consumption raises. The inside of the head was very clean and no deposits. This was also a good time to change the plastic holders of the injectors (5*3$), they get loose when getting old and cause leakage. My head doesn’t have lifters, the space between camshaft and valve has to be set by shims, so I will adjust them the engine is finished and warm.
