Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem.
In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the
valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the
valves in to make a better seal.
Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for
pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and
perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service
manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in
your service manual is in this video.
I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video.
It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it
gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for
answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you
chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around
while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If
it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or
missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports.
Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself,
never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They
will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average

How To Adjust Valves Honda B18C VTEC 4 Cylinder -EricTheCarGuy

I think this might just about complete my valve adjustment videos on Honda
engines. There are only a couple more that I can think of that I haven't
covered like the Vigor 5 cylinder engine and the DOHC VTEC found in the NSX
(that will be a fun one trust me) but that's about it. As you can see in
the video this valve adjustment requires a special tool. You don't have to
use the same one that I used in the video but you won't be able to
accomplish this procedure without some sort of special tool. Once again
make sure the engine is cold and it's probably not a bad idea to run back
through them after you go through the first time just to make sure
everything is still in spec, it's strange how one revolution of the crank
shaft can change things. Otherwise good luck.
