Greg was on trailer duty. I spent the day on cylinder head duty. :D In the next few photos you can see the manual valve spring compressor. I removed all the valves and springs. I measured, inspected, and analyzed everything. We had a little touch up work to do on the valve seats of a couple. The rest got a regular race type valve job.

Back mostly together. I need to get a few new valves, a couple of springs, and some keepers. These heads only have 9-runs on them and there are a few parts that are already needing to be replaced. Crazy deal isn't it. :wink:

......heads only have 9-runs on them ..... needing to be replaced......
Could it possibly have something to do with operator error?... :shock:
Maybe you should read the instruction manual first before using the equipment... :mrgreen:
