nice job. i see one problem. the head flange appears to be badly warped which may have an issue sealing.

Yes i was waiting for someone to see that, it looks quite bad but its only about 0.5mm deviation. Its a 12mm flange so it should allow enough to have it machined. Thats the plan anyway, the machine shop guy that looked at it couldint figure out how to clamp it he said he would have to weld some to it to hold it flat.

i figured. machinist is probably going to charge you at least 50.00 to do this. in the future make sure you bolt or clamp the flange down before welding. also only weld one inch or less at a time and move to another part of the flange. this will prevent excessive warpage.
