Sport Hillman Imp cylinder head,shim to camshaft carrier fitting

We found the top of the Sport Wills Ringed cylinder head was not as flat as we thought,Corely Conversions in the UK supplied a suitable 1mm thick stainless shim,we could then clean off the top of the head to make it flat.

Look under the carrier,you will see the thin stainless plate,it was CNC profiled to fit.We now have new valves,seats,guides,followers,camshaft carrier and R20 camshaft.This just about makes this top end of the motor brand new.

Not bad for a circa 1967 Sport cylinder head,type 7010180.

How hard can this be,try it and see!
