Another good looking long shaft 'rude.

By the discouloration of the heads, it looks like it has been hot at one stage.
What do you think Mark S?

Good diagnosis Mercman, That cylinder head has definitely been overheated with that burnt paint. Doesn't mean it's the end of the world though. They are a pretty tough engine. But I wouldn't overpay for it. Need to compression test it and make sure it doesn't piston rattle when running. Then need to remove the heads and have a good look at the cylinders. You can be sure the heads will be warped by now, probably will need to change them or you'll blow a head gasket. What a shame, it's a nice clean engine.
