Just posted in the wanted section, but thought I’d follow up here with a brief summary of the current situation.

My nieces’ fella had a lovely Westy Weekender which has a turbo’d 1Y installed.

Glowplug dnapped in the headband remival attempts have resulted in the glowplug boss fracturing.

I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m told it now needs a new head.

So I’m on the lookout for a 1Y head or if one can be found I’d be happy to install an AAZ.

Van has now been recovered from West Wales, to Caerphilly so I can now go and take a look at it.

But assuming the head is knackered, anybody got any thoughts on other options?

Cheers and Happy Christmas to you all,
Chappy



Back in the slow lane, yeah!
