I have a set of 76mm wossners and new rings. Ran these briefly in an engine which I had problems with. Have done no actual mileage.

I'd let them go for £450 posted. I don't really want to sell them; as I'd like to build another engine, but sensible head had been having a clear out recently.

There's a possibility the 1W on eBay belongs to yousaf nabi as I know he's having a damn good clear out. Think he's a member on here so could message him and he might get a notification.
