Cylinder Head 201 - Radius Cut Valve Job
This video covers the complete valve job process that your machinist might perform. If the 100 series videos didn't help you identify and correct a problem with your cylinder head, then this is the next step. This video is brought to you with permission from my machinist in full 1080HD, and covers cleaning up the head inside and out, preparation and setting up a radius cutter, cutting all 16 valve seats, valve grinding, and spans 3.5 hours of actual work in under 30 minutes. There's nothing like this anywhere else on YouTube. THANK YOU BALLOS PRECISION MACHINE. Thank you for the professional explanation and execution of a job excellently-done, and un-precedented access to your facilities. A valve job is done by re-grinding or replacing valves, and then having new seats cut to match the faces of the valves you're using. There are several different machines that might be utilized to achieve this result, but the process is the same no matter how it's done. There are seat cutters that utilize cutting stones. There are valve seat cutters with 3 separate angles installed 120° out-of-phase, and there are single cutters with all 3 angles (radius cutter) that cut with one blade in one pass. The machine demonstrated here is a Sunnen VGS-20 Radius Cutter. This machine (now out of production) produces a gradual curved seat that's superior to the shape of a traditional 3-angle seat. While a radius cutter does contain the 30, 45 and 60 degree angles, it does so without leaving any sharp edges between their faces. My valve selection includes Supertech 1mm oversized nitride-coated stainless steel undercut and back-cut intake valves, and 1mm oversized Inconel back-cut Exhaust valves. Inconel is a high-temperature alloy utilized in marine and forced-induction performance engines that can handle more abuse than steel can without melting. The other characteristics of the valves which are discussed typically yield bigger gains in airflow than simply using a bigger hole and a bigger valve. Why I did this to a perfectly-good cylinder head: I changed cams. Because the valves were previously recessed during another valve job 9 years ago, my valve installed height was increased and this raised the operating positions of my rocker arms. My new camshaft selection dictates using the stock valve install height. The only solutions to this valve install height problem are to either replace the valve seats, or install oversized valves. I opted for the latter.

How To Clean The Carbon From Top Of Pistons | Using Only Household Products
VISIT THE SITE TO SEE ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON THIS: http://www.mach1restoration.com/how-to-clean-the-carbon-from-top-of-pistons -using-only-household-products/ After pulling the GT40 heads from the 5.0 roller motor I discovered that the tops of the pistons were coated in a thick layer of black carbon buildup. The cylinder walls (bores) were in great shape with no gouges or burrs. This left me with 2 options. Option 1 was to disassemble the entire short block and replace the pistons and parts that were essential after short block disassembly. Or Option 2 was to try and clean these up and freshen up the cylinder walls. I chose option 2. I started by spraying the piston tops with the bathroom cleaner and I let it soak in for about 10 minutes. Next, I took an SOS or Brillo pad and soaked it in rubbing alcohol. I started to scrub and scrub until the carbon began to come off in places. This is a vigorous process that does require some old fashioned elbow grease but in the end the results are well worth it. Once all of the carbon was relatively gone off of the flat areas of the piston I broke out the air grinder with a brass brush for the valve reliefs The air tools are not essential if you want to take a little extra time with a brass bristled hand brush. Whatever you do, only use brass! After all of the carbon was clear I used the steel wool wet with alcohol and wiped down the cylinder bores and made them shine like new again. I gave the pistons a final rinse with alcohol and then vigorously oiled the pistons and the cylinder walls to ensure no surface rust would appear. I also sprayed them down with Ballistol (gun cleaner all natural) Anyone can do this with a little time and patients. Just take your time and you'll love the results!
