£124 so far, I guess someone thinks it’s recoverable... EZ-weld TIG the rocker post and chamber cracks, mill the chambers for seat inserts, bit of high temperature epoxy to seal the porosity and job done :)

Has it? Or has a 998 clubman, a collection of bits and a piece of paper been 'saved'?

To be fair I think it is expensive - put together it won't be worth any more than the asking price and there's a fair bit of labour required (and probably some more parts).
