My friend...

    Whilst adjusting my valves recently, i noticed a great big "MEXICO" stamp on the inside of them, below the rocker shaft to the left. I'm guessing this means they're Mexican heads. They are single port and fitted to my GERMAN '78 1200 beetle, it's the original engine, but I'm not sure whether...
