Re: Prop stand

My 72 <12fs has a "barrel" type with a cross hatch curved foot since I bought it in 1980, pretty sure this is original part. But it is not beyond the realms of possibility that there were a number of suppliers with a greater or equal number of variations.

Valve guides OK...I would just torque the head down again, the head gasket is soft and if you have anything under the barrel, that will ease to, its a simple thing to do and easy to see if there is something wrong.....but sounds more and more like kommando is on the right track....
