  11. I have the spanner for the head but one problem is not all the bolts are fully accessible to pull on the spanner. Some you can only push the spanner which I feel would give a variation in tightness!
  12. Cheers Richard, your help is much appreciated.
  13. Hi all, I have just had the head skimmed on my Bedford MW after a head gasket failure, and reading the manual there are no torque settings for the head bolts. The book says just to tighten the bolts! Anyone got a suitable ball park figure for the torque settings? Cheers
  14. Anyone have an idea what this loom is for? Currently on Ebay. Cheers, Chris
