Took way longer to get here than I planned but learned a lot along the way. Thanks to everyone for your inp...

My machinist friend also suggested the modeling clay technique, but said it would only be accurate if I were using solid lifters. The tool you mentioned is new to me, I'm going to do some research on that. I have a se...

In the process of trouble shooting some bent valves I found that my head was severely warped. I took it to my machinist ( a gen...
