Cutting Excess Guide from ProComp 210 SBC Head, custom Porting Combustion Chambers 4
Part Four of Port modificatins on ProComp 210cc aluminum SBC heads. Guide over hang from installation and correcting the combustion chambers to unshroud the spark plug is a big deal on these heads. China castings leave a lot to be desired, but still with all the work you must do it is still the bargin of the year and is a force to be reckond with when "bang per buck" is needed. The base of the spark plug should not be exposed in the chamber, and any valve guide "Overhang" will obstruck flow and create fuel "sheer" which seperates vapor to droplets that wont burn. Most Big Name companies will not take time to detial these issues as production cost prohibit these mods, so have your local machine shop take apart your heads and look for these problems before you bolt them on your prize engine. www.headbytes.com 615-212-7168

Cylinder Head 204 - Porting & Polishing
This is a first-generation 1992 1.6L Hyundai Elantra small-combustion-chamber head. Thats what it is. It's a J1 engine's cylinder head. In Cylinder Head 106 I talked about the mainstream porting theories as they are discussed. We looked at a cylinder head that I have thousands of dollars of professional work performed on, and a bone-stock second-generation head that I didn't port. In this video I just might do something you haven't seen done before. For some, that may be uncomfortable. The port and polish job I perform here is what I think will work best for my current build. This is not an extreme killer port job. What will be different here is where port textures are concerned, I will be following the advice of a reputable source that will remain un-named. You're free to port yours differently than I do in this video, and I give you that out, around the 20 minute marker. The Hyundai is far from being an ultimate-performance build. It's a $400 box of scraps with nothing but time invested. It's perfect for this video. My finished product WILL be an improvement over what I had. I don't yet have access to a flow bench. I still have an achievement to un-lock. As far as you should be concerned with the techniques I employ... without flow numbers there is no evidence of what this will do, but we will gather lots of info from dynp sessions and drag strip time slips. If I could test it on a flow bench, I would. There are MANY, and when I say many, I mean thousands of flame war mongering pirates floating around on rough seas with a hair trigger cannon finger itching to fire if you port a head any differently than what the herd mentality says to do while porting a cylinder head. I cover the herd mentality because it has merit. It's been tested. Tried and true. But I don't follow it to the letter of the law. I'm definitely not here to de-bunk it. I would port a cylinder head differently for each build based on how that engine was used. There's an extremely valid reason why relating to air speed. It's not the texture of a port that maximizes the effect of fuel atomization, but the velocity of the air running through an x or y sized valve. The driving factor in this is the piston speed. I'm not going to give you the technical information, but will refer you to information about the Lovell factor. There's a better description of this in the links below, and even a calculator to help you find your engine's sweet spot. Why the Lovell factor is important: https://www.highpowermedia.com/blog/3346/the-effect-of-valve-size Lovell gas factor calculator: http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/lovellgascalc.html Only people who have flow testing equipment know for sure what really works and have the capability to produce a perfectly-matched port job for the ultimate performance build. Those guys know the definition of ultimate, and THEY are floating below the water Aegis-class submarines ready to blow your comment up if you don't know what you're talking about. They don't care if you're an armchair mechanic or a herd of pirates. I will say, they're zoomed in pretty close on me right now, and I'm expecting to take a few hits. My work will be tested based on Dyno and drag strip performance, and the results will be posted here. Fortunately, those kinds of videos are a WHOLE LOT EASIER TO MAKE!!!





Cobra Engine Build Part 1
This will be the first in a series on the engine build for my Cobra. This is a 351W bored 0.030" with a 408 stroker crank. The intake was converted to fuel injection and featured in a previous video. I will list components as much as I can.





What i use to polish cylinder heads and intake manifolds
Join me on Facebook! www.facebook.com/omgitsmrmack Just showing your guys how we go about polishing and getting the beautiful finishes after its all said and done.. this method takes some skill.. some might say i make it look easy.. at 14000rpm the grinder i use is not a joke and has hurt people when they dont use it properly.. when the paper unloads on a long rod it tends to bend the rod at a 90 degree angle and if the user freaks out and does not hold it away and let it slow down then they end up with a nice big sliced up arm or mid section.. i myself have bent a few in my time and lucky for my i have a quick reflex and manage to hold it away without hurting myself..

Volvo Engine head porting/ matching exhaust
Gasket matching my Exhaust port on the head. Nothing spectacular and quite boring to watch but quite tricky to do. The point on this "process" is to align correctly the Exhaust port with the Exhaust manifold to allow gas to flow without turbulence. it can exit faster and let more fresh air come inside the cylinder. In the same time the shape of this port is important : the very light conical shape is a good and reliable design for Exhaust. the point is to grind very far to have a tight curve and not only grind to match.

Paint Matching & Aluminum Polishing
This is a short video about paint matching panel repair, and polishing aluminum. For this 1979 Fiat I needed to paint the hood since the paint job on it (the third paint job) faded and got extremly chalky. I use DuPont ChromaSeal value shade 7 to prep the hood for the metallic bronze that orginally came on the car. I also polish out scratches on the aluminum ornaments for the wheels.





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 gearhead's garage.





Volvo Engine head porting / port matching prep work !
Music : Mr oizo and Gaspard Augé "tricyle express" Step two in the project : Gasket matching is a good way to improve the flow in your head (engine heads only) and to avoid the bad turbulences where they are not supposed to be : between parts. It's the first step in your porting job that you should think about ,and do with your brain and hands. The castings patterns are often quite "bad quality" (or i should say the consequence of the application of a mass production process ) and it's the way to start this kind of job.





How To Remove and Replace Valves in a Cylinder Head -EricTheCarGuy
If you need to remove a valve from a cylinder head either to replace the valve or replace the valve seals, this video will help you do that. You can also do this process while the cylinder head is still fastened to the engine block with some tools. To do that, put the piston at TDC compression stroke and make sure both valves are closed. You can then run compressed air into the cylinder to hold the valves in place as you compress the valve springs. I often use my compression tester hose to do this. You need to remove the schrader valve first before you attempt this, if not, air will not flow into the cylinder. You can also use a piece of rope or equivalent to keep the valves from dropping into the cylinder while you work. This method works well if you're just replacing the valve seals. You won't be able to use the large spring compressor however. You'll have to use the Lisle or some other type of compressor do manage that task. Here's some useful links for you. Tools. Large Spring Compressor: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/gearwrench-383d-valve-spring-compressor/#oid=100 2_1 Lisle Spring Compressor Tool: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/lisle-36050-valve-keeper-remover-and-installer-k it/#oid=1002_1 I had a heck of a time trying to find the Honda special tool and was not able to provide a link for you. Sorry about that. The Lisle tool will work just fine, OR I've seen some home made versions of that type of extension that looked like they'd work pretty well. Related videos.
