How to Reseat / Lap Valves (Basic Valve Job)

In this video i'm explaining how to reseat or lap valves in a flathead or overhead valve engine. Also can be called a valve job, but this is not a complete valve job. I also used to much valve grinding compound, it does not require a whole lot. Usually when a engine needs this done is when a engine has low compression that is found to be leaking around the valves, or sometimes a engine will backfire do to the valves not closing completely/properly. Thanks for watching.

EASY, HOW I LAPP & GRIND VALVES. THEY DONT TEACH THIS TRICK IN SCHOOL, ONLY OLDSKOOL.
Automotive technician since 1991 I show how I do a valve grinding job (Lapping Valves) at home using a vacuum hose, drill & compound, don't over think it and don't assume it cant be done. learn how and save money on your project with out taking your cylinder head to the machine shop. Valve guides must be in good shape ( with no significant play or bent Valves before you perform this task, but this procedure works very well if done with care & quality. Go get it! and God bless.

5 Horsepower Briggs Restoration Project and How to unseize pistons and valves
May be a while on the rest, just hang in there, I will eventually work on this again, its just going to take alot of money to get it bored out and sleeved, new valves, new piston/rings, new rod, everything! i found an old 5 horsepower briggs and stratton engine block with a thrown rod, seized piston and valves. In this video i unseize the piston and valves, and remove them. And begin the clean up process. Cylinder might have to bored. Also note, i said on the video that i may need a new piston because of the stuck rings, not necessarily true, because the rings should come off with no problem. Unless the piston is scored or worn, it shouldn't need replaced. Thanks for watching, and please subscribe!
