This is the after.

Was only a gentle canter though.

The pre load is a bit stiff for the road, it’s doing a track day at the weekend though, so I’ll leave it be for now, then soften it up a bit.

Just sitting here admiring my ride and would like to thank everyone who has helped me the last 6 months. Learning from everyone here has been a real joy. Not all forums are like this one. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to give some of this knowledge back.

Yes they do have a large out let... they were made local tradesman here in my city (years ago beautiful quality) by a guy that was a classic club m/cycle guru...since passed on...my mates reckoned it was the go to have that sized outlet and at the time I was running a 7s cam smoothbore 34mm mk2s and another head ...that combination made it sound more like a speed way motor and was really ( edit) ONLY happy at full throttle work (the things you learn) I ended up getting the cam re ground and nitride hardened to a mega cycle profile with radius followers (now about 1/4 race for improved mid range)
then shimmed up the rocker arms & lightend the whole valve train up
It does have a bark :)
