Being lazy and using power tools on the mating faces has caused this agro

The head can distort easily by the fifth head bolt in the area of the push rods apeture if it has been overtightened in the past, check out... http://www.stationary-engine.net/for...ad.php?t=19759 and you will see it in the photo.

Well had a further look at this d type today I've cleaned up the block face a few different grades of paper and a flat block and its come up well,refitted the piston,cleaned out the sump again! Which is now spotless and refitted the head studs.Then my attention turned to the head which I decided to flat also anyway when I moved the head up on its end for one reason or another I noticed a hole which at first I thought should be there,its between the 2 cylinder head stud holes on the valve side where the pushrods come through the hole it's self is about 2" square so no wonder the crankcase filled with water it's obviously frost damage I'm just glad I noticed it before tried filling the hopper with water again! Il take a pic if it helps anyone understand where the hole actually is.

Pictures say a thousand words , shame about the damage though, should be easy enough to find a head

I know how frustrating it can be. Years ago the head gasket went on my Dihatsu hi jet (nice little van). I went to the spares place & the price they wanted for just a head gasket was riduculous so i got a sheet of copper & made one. Back together, No good, I took the head off & found that while i was cleaning up the remnants of the original gasket,a piece had fallen in the waterway in the head & when i put the head on it had fallen on the face of the new gasket. I had to make another. The first one is still hanging on my shed wall as a reminder to be more carefull.

So much for my easy fix!! Another head is readily available, there is a thread on here with someone else wanting one and he has been offered 2 or 3 so far.
