After another inspection of the head, there still seems to be traces of oil leaking through exhaust valve ports so decided just to whip it off and refit another..
It wasn't the original head off that engine, sure it was one froggy gave me, thats 2 lots of stem seals its had, couple stud threads are ''Censored'', it's now in the scrap pile..
Quick clean, rebuild of another good one and rebuilt.. and refitted..
