Just an update. for any who is intrested.

Just took the head off and well 4 valves are bent. This is not the easiest job in the world. Sorry ive not took pics due to the fact stripping the engine in full on snow storms and hail stone didnt quite fancy getting the camera out. Might do when i take off a replacement head from a scrap yard cant be bothered getting valves changed and fffing on sorting it all out. so you never know.

I'm going to change the water pump after finally getting the engine down this far may aswel.

Does anyone know the cost of the tensioners i may need to replace? or a good link/place to buy them from ?

P.S I bought the timing set will flog it on once im done cos I aint doing this again.
Currently in shotton's garage:
