[Healeys] Ah 100 rebuild

One problem that I have encountered on a few 100 engines was a distorted head face on the block. This was easily remedied by skimming the top of the block using the main bearing bores as a reference.
I am pretty sure that this distortion is a major contributor to the common problem of leakage above #s 2 &3 plug.
Certainly have not had that problem after having the head face trued up.

We have a BN2 in the shop in for an engine rebuild after spinning #3 rod bearing and tearing some stuff up.
We’ve rebuilt many engines, but this is our first 100-4.
Seems pretty straight forward, but they all have their intricacies.  
If anybody has any specific areas to watch for or specific advice related to minimizing leaks (ha-ha) we would greatly appreciate any input.
Thank you,
