    A wire wheel on a bench grinder will clean the heavy carbon deposits from the valves but they need to be ground back in to the head valve seats with coarse then smooth grinding paste, i use one of these for best results....

    Good shout!

    Removed all the rings, just waiting for my honing tool to rock up

    Spent a bit of time cleaning up the injectors and made a start on the valves


    Sent the head off so should go pick that up Thursday and can then start rebuilding them and then waiting for oil pump to turn up and a few other bits

    Got the heads back

    Cost £120 for both skims

    Started to lap the valves in today and got the pistons in and got the oil cooler on

    Next job is to get the exhaust valves lapped in and then do the same on the other head then the heads can go on


    Just waiting on oil pump and bearings and then the bottom end can go back together

    Plenty to get on with though

    Need to order some exhaust studs and replace them while it's all out
