yep cunifer is way better than copper don't suffer the same stress's as copper
but harder to flare

that looks like a nice kit mate bet it wasn't cheap but like you have found out buy cheap u sometimes regret it. just sell the draper one and make some pennies back

With the new tool even conifer pipes are easy to flare
Hope to do all new pipe work next week

After the Cam belt snapping on the motorway last year, and the truck sitting outside my house for the last 11 months debating what to do with her.....i had her picked up last Saturday to assess the damage done....if it's reparable at low cost then there is a chance I will keep her going otherwise I will strip her down for parts 😢
I have to think I have the cost of the 2 pajero's to keep too so will see what happens...

They generally snap rockers rather than bend valves , so you may be lucky and just get away with dropping the rocker cover off , and then redoing the timing
