Cylinder head pressure test and skim
 
Hey folks, anyone have any recommendations for someplace around the Midlands to pressure test a cylinder head and possibly skim the head he necessary. Midlands area or within striking distance of it if possible. If not I'll take any recommendations. Thanks 👍

Don't have any recommendations in that area unfortunately but I'm curious about what makes you want to do it... compression issues, dropped a valve or something like that?

What's the bike doing that makes you think it's the head?

It's an older bike came to me as a non runner. Got it running, balanced carbs etc but it was overheating badly and coolant rises kept stiffening so build-up of pressure from somewhere.

Condrons only 2 mile out the killeigh road should be able. Worth the question anyway
