New engine getting real close
« on: April 26, 2012, 09:19:55 PM »
Well some of you might have looked at my other thread on the head, here's some update pictures
 
this is a picture of me checking the valve lift, valve stem height affects total valve lift, the shorter the valve stem the more lift. Cam card showed it should have 0.55" lift on the Exh and 0.533 intake lift, my readings showed 0.556 Exh and 0.546 intake lift, close enough for me

this picture is after I checked for valve stem clearance, total valve lift, and check/lapped in the valves 1.75" intake and 1.5" exh

head is on! notice the cam bearings? brass heavy duty units from Burton power, most of the valve train stuff was purchased from Burton power

Getting close!
