I recently done the cylinder head on my mini last week, had to change it as i found out that cylinder 1 inlet valve was not seating properly.

 

here is the head refurbished ready to go on

Good job, it always amazes me how much carbon builds up in an a series engine, I have took other cars apart and nothing compares to the a series for it, I took a k series apart and it was really clean, must be to do with the combustion chamber shape or su carb.
