Triumph nightmares.

Trying to get Chuckys engine out of his frame proved a nightmare, so we decided to take the rocker covers off, this is what we found....
The "expert machinist" he engaged to make his valves decided to make them out of cheese, not sure why he used cheese, he just did.
No surprise that the valve clearances were being adjusted every 20km's, engine has been run for about 200 odd km's, now it's rebuild number 3.....we'll be doing it properly this time!!
Cheers all.
