Sounds like a bad spark plug....happens more than you would think.
Oppy mechanics manual says:

However, do you think, re-facing the valves and seats both to 30 is advantageous? Because of:

Moreover, the exhaust valve head's upper most part is rather thick compared to the intake valve head. I guess, this is due to better heat transfer enhanced by more material. On the other hand, I definetly believe this thick valve head reduces gas flow. See lower valve on this Picture; it really sticks out:

What do you think, should I "flatten" the head by grinding off some material?

The Oppy mechanics manual states minimum thickness of valve head(s) to 1/32" - this would be at least half of what it measures right now.

"Oppy cam it's a precision 212 alt. $200"

-> Still for sale? Would you ship to Germany?

Do standard rods of a 40 ci (with 42 heads) fit with it without machining anything?
the newer style 42 head is cut out a little more on the exhaust side about like you have it marked

You mean like this?

I was already wondering why every picture of 42 oppy cylinder heads I found on the web did not look like mine (far right one). There is the answer, I guess.

Do you think it is worthwhile grinding off the bit within the red circle? (not caring about losing compression by this)
