I had a call on Monday evening from George Bailey, who stays in Orkney.

He wishes to dispose of a special tool as originally supplied to Rover
dealers by
V L Churchill, one that is in effect a dummy cylinder block (top end) onto
which a cylinder head can be bolted for the purpose of setting  the
tappet clearances on the workbench. Very useful if you have just done a top
end overhaul.

The tool is complete less one bolt; it is large (the same footprint as a
cylinder head but only a couple of inches in depth) and heavy, but
It would be useable with any 4 cylinder P6.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in such an item (possibly as
a way of displaying a cylinder head?) George can be contacted on 01856

regards TC
