Are they really valve safe , just that now that I think about it I had to lay the head assy on either the intake or exhaust gasket faces as there was always at least one valve sticking down so I couldn't rest it on the head gasket surface . Mmmm? , but then the history of this engine is well dodgy
That's ok dickwad, the answer wasn't for your benefit anyways. I guess your motors are so finely done with perfect skimming that you don't need a head gasket and blocks decked so fine pistons are flush within a couple of microns unlike the standard 2 litre where we have to use head gaskets and our pistons come 5 thou short of deck height.

Must get my hands on one of these kiwi Lima motors.

Hamish, that's a fucking Maori name isn't it???
Well yes my Ducati motors do have such fine finishing that they don't use head gaskets , just a couple of O rings for the oil and water. as for getting your hands on a Kiwi Lima motor , I have never heard of one, but in any event that would involve removing at least one hand off your dick , and I cant see that happening . And just when I was wondering just how stupid you really are , you go and show me ..... yep Hamish is a maori name .... Oh and don't send me no more PM's , seriously Dude what is your problem .... wife run off with your boyfriend
If you kept your criticisms constructive and ( even close to ) factual you wouldnt come across ass such an arsehole . To be honest , I cant be bothered with you , how 'bout you just keep your unpleasantness to yourself :)

i am not allowed to give this information away publically. it is most likely covered under a non-diclosure agreement. i didn't mean anything nasty about it sorry.
i am just trying to help you out in this situation and give you the best advice possible. lets just say i work for a certain manufacturer of timing belts as an engineer :)
forgot to add for your particular timing belt it has a shelf life of 7 years due to the materials it is constructed with. hence why any part warranty would be invalid if it was fitted.[/quote]

Maybe then you can suggest the best and baddest ass belt to get?

So what that fucks a Ducati motor Gota do with a ford pinto engine?

I'd have thought with not even 20 posts under your belt you'd have a bit more respect for those on the forum.

(Where's the sheep shagger icon?)

An yeah. I pmd you to see what your problem is. Not even mature enough to answer that.

By the way. I can keep this up for a long long time

i don't get too caught up in the sales side of things too much, but i would recommend using a reputable seller, much like what others have already suggested.
this way you can insure the belt is fresh. i think you can probably guess what i am going to say, but something like a Gates belt will do you well ;)
