      The Supplier would replace for free I assume, mate.
      A bit of a muck around if any of the guys have paid a shop to fit it, :-(

      Either way, I'm sure they will look after those affected

          thats dated 20-4-2016, so hopefully they got sent back before most people bought them?
          You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

            I had a similar problem with a set of fully reconditioned Holden V8 cylinder heads around 25 - 30 years ago where the tips of the valves were not heat treated correctly and the tops of the valve stems mushroomed after a few hundred klm's, had to cut the tops off the valve stems to get the valves back out.

            I was first told by the supplier that I didn't adjust the valves clearances correctly but they are non-adjustable on stock 308 heads, was then told that I needed a hi volume oil pump as there was insufficient oil flow to the top end which I informed them that I had a new hi volume oil pump and the oil pressure was excellent, then I was told that I must have used the wrong pushrods which were new from Holden, after being told I was a whinger I was given a new set of valves and told see ya later.

            Didn't take long to find out I was not the only customer with a problem after contacting the Department of Fair Trading, the business shut soon after.

            I don't think that there will be any problems from Takegawa sorting out the problem.

                Pretty sure it was the Cylinder Head Men from Wickham in Newcastle, the shop was next to a muffler shop on the corner from memory.
