Car repair / five cylinders only working:

I had Friday, June 24th, off, no rain expected, so I made an appointment with my friend and mechanic Tom, in city of Essen of Krupp fame, some 22 mls from home:

As advised in this forum, we took the cylinder head off and found no burned valves and they were working nicely. The gasket had some smoke traces between '5 and '6, but nothing serious.
Saturday, we did the valve adjusting finding outlet valves #5 without any and #6 with too little play.   #5 was unable to close.

To test, I took a secondary lane with a very steep climb out of the river Ruhr valley to D?sseldorf: the Plymouth has back every power he ever had and it?s nice, steady rhythm too!
