It's one of the most informative sites around. I loved his story of the Citroen - great stuff on a forgotten car. He's got a very good reputation amongst the Lanciani in the US.

Whats happened since Aug 2009? or am I missing something??

Interesting to note his cylinder head bolt issue. Is this common? I assume it occurs when head gasket failure isnt dealt with and the water emitting corrodes into the bolt holes.

However I am surprised that with all the machining expertise at his disposal that a few snapped bolts could be tollerated. I certainly had to deal once with one snapping in trying to get a 1.3 head off and I removed the offending stud once the head was extracted.

However, it is great to see this type of commentary with a style of humour greatly appreciated and not often see from across the pond!

I've not seen it on a Fulvia engine, but I know it's common on Aurelia engines where it can be a real pig to separate the heads. I think one of the issues is that aluminium oxide has a higher volume than it's parent, so when it starts to corrode it really fills the gaps (witness the trouble getting a thermostat off on a Fulvia). My dad made a very thin cutter out of bigger bolt for running down the seized studs on his engine to get them out.
I agree with you though - I would take the bolt heads off and come at it that way.
