forever... We all have different ways of doing it, and I'm going to show
This video won't put a dent in most people's grey matter outside of
entertainment value... but I tried to keep it fun. I'd like to leave at
least a small dent. But no music in these because they're going to cover a
lot of ground and fast. I'm not doing anything difficult. This part of
this job really isn't. Most everybody pays someone else to do the
complicated stuff for them, and those people do it every day so it's still
easy unless you earn your money to pay for it from difficult and degrading

Chevrolet Cylinder Head Dyno Test
Looking for an answer to the age-old question (at least when it comes to
engine builders), is it better to refurbish an cheap old set of cylinder
heads or buy new? So we took a pair of $50 Chevy swap meet heads and put
them up against a set of new Iron Eagles from Dart. What we found out might

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
Setting the idle in a Corvair!
setting the idle in this engine, a 110 HP with a 270 Isky cam...normally, I
set the idle at around 6 to 700 RPM; when the chokes kick in, I set it to
around 1100 RPM. It might vary depending on the size of the cam you are
using, and personal preference. With this engine, I am running a dual Exhaust system, the RPM is a little
lower so I can hear the rumble. For more info, don' t forget to refer to
your shop manual, or give me a holler, I will be glad to help you out to
get your ride going.
