The head is porous (cracked on central oil gallery) and can be fixed quite easily.

..do a search.

If the head is porous, I think you have to remove it and send it to get sleeved.

There are grubs on the outside of the head that lead to the central oil gallery. It is from here you can tube the gallery or blank it and pipe outside of the head. V-tuning used to do it and so does (did) Courtney. like I say, there are a few that can.... most head shops will want the head off.

so what do i need to do to get it fixed then?

Are courtney sport still open?, i heard they went bust but im only about half hour away from em, was gonna take it there for a power run.

Can a costcast be bolted straight to it? Not likely to get one as they expensive but this would solve problem? What are my other options?
