like ash says, it'll be fine for summer, in cold weather it will probably cause carb freeze, especially if you have a fmc fitted. i had it happening all winter, took me weeks to figure it out lol

cool, ye thats the conclusion i came to after a bit of thinkin. did u ever sort ur tappin noise out ash? ive got a slight tick comin from the top end. clearances are good, push rods are straight (now lol) an manifolds are tight. only thing i can think of is bent valve but id expect it to be pretty loud if it was

cheer again

welcome bud, im on Anglesey, not many people with 5's up here. Good luck with the search, u'll prob have to travel some big distances to get a nice one

these are the ones i always use

the trick is to turn them inside out an then slide it over in one quick motion, as soon as u stop it gets stuck.
plus they arnt universal so they it properly. i use to fit them in situ aswell, no need to remove the drive shaft.
