I want to get my two piece head bushed as the cam has eaten the head.

Does anyone have any information or a contact number for someone that can carry out the job.

Hi Henry,

One of my TL's has a bronze bush in it but I haven't managed to find anyone who does this type of repair, however there is a guy up near me in the Newcastle area who can supply a cam with roller bearings each end and machine the old head to fit, he also does complete heads with bigger valves and the cams with the bearings. Only trouble is the mount for the top of the engine is set further back like the old XL's, but that's easy overcome. If you want your TL to look standard then go for the cam and get him to machine it to fit for you. Think approx £160 + P&P.

I've just bought a full head off him for another road going TLS and it all looks good. I would have had it fitted by now but when I stripped my engine one of the cam sliders had snapped so I'm waiting for a new one of those to arrive. Should have it fitted for next week though so will let you know how it goes.

Think the bearing solution is better long term than the phosphor bronze solution.

He trades on ebay under Leezy i think. There's even a number to contact him on there. His name's Colin. Really helpful guy.

Hope this helps
