I've come across galling but that is usually stainless on stainless. What about stainless bolts into a cast iron head?

i tend to find s/s is not very strong tensile wise , so if its gets a bit tight it can snap in the head where a high tensile steel one wouldn't.

Ages since I've updated anything but slow progress is being made.

I had some brackets for the coil packs lasered so that the coils (8) can mount on the ends of the heads. Clearance issues mean that all four brackets are slightly different.

Gearbox hokey-cokey! I took the opportunity to top up the gearbox oil and it started leaking, so it's out (again) to try and find out why.
