Yes it is me Mr Hobbs

Just had the head for my HS rebuilt by MR Davies Bearings, valves reseated new guides etc,
So need to put it back on the car, I have some info from years ago when I had the 2.3 Single cam road rally car, but have nothing for the twin cam.
Andy doesnt have anything either, the figures you quote are they for the twin cam or single? is there a difference? and where did you get the info, dont tell me you will have to shoot me if you disclose that!!!
Cheers
