New head skimmed and being reassembled

I got hold of another head from not too far away which also gave me the excuse for a pleasant run into Norfolk to pick it up. I had it skimmed yesterday and this evening I installed new valve stem seals on all the intake valves. Tomorrow I should put in the shims, buckets and the cam although I probably need to remove a couple of spots of rust first which the cam has picked up while it sat on the shelf at the breakers.
