Machine shop in Cork?
 
Hi lads,

I've started a little resto-project there, bought a non-runner and sure enough, she has fecked a valve on #3.

Would you be able to recommend a Cork shop to work on the head?

Any rough ideas on how much will that cost me?

Cheers,
Rami

Murphy's Engine Overhauls in Cork, I always found them spot on.

Haven't opened her up yet, but by the melted spark plug and metal bits on the exhaust port, I'm guessing dropped a valve. When I say fecked, I mean fecked :lbhbh:

Unless its something very rare,you'd be better off getting a s/h head.

s/h ?

Nah, it's pretty common bike. I assume you say getting a second hand head all together but then again, I'll have to trust that it's in good nick, etc. So unless mine are in a very bad condition I think I'll prefer to have it done properly and just forget about it.

I'll have that in mind if Murphy's doesn't work for whatever reason, cheers!
