Better, but with the same old same old.
I've fired it up again and its still not performing correctly. Its better, but not right. I fear the crank shaft is suffering again. I'm going to look at the cylinder heads next and perhaps make two new inlet valves and seats. I'm thinking it was a mistake to make the inlet valves so big, so I'm going to reduce their size. Too much mixture is getting into the combustion chamber and ignition is taking place far too advanced of TDC. Its OK lower down the rev range, but when the throttle is opened it tends to labour and get extremely hot.
