SORRYY!!! long awaited update my computer is still down im on my moms shitty netbook lol anyway

Did some lecture in class and learned how to do 45 degree valve face cut it was pretty damn easy

Grinded down the tip and made a 45 degree chamfer on this machine since it makes PERFECT chamfers



After me machining it




Some before shots





Did some work



Then BAM side by side perfect cut and mirror finish



MAILMANNN I love you!!!! got my Brian Crower step 2 cams 264 intake 264 exhaust cams =]






Wanted to check the difference of the lift on the stock and bc cams big ass difference



MAILMANN AGAIN! my new hard drive came in haha



So the nextweek I got sick then my classmate eric worked on the head with out me we were doing 3 angle seat jobs a 30 degree 45 degree and a 60 degree. Anyway some dick took the stone that eric was using and switched it with a smaller 45 degree stone so pretty much pitted one of the seats. Sent it to napa by my school they got a machine shop they are now replacing the seat should be done HOPEFULLY tomorrow or latest Monday sigh.... cant keep on grinding it down because it would be too much metal so I said FUCK IT and just replace the seat OH and napa is doing it for free :D




So today MAILMANNNN again my Brian crower springs and titanium retainers came in wommpppp



Side by side with my cams after the seats are done everything will be back together and work on the block



Comparison with the stock and BC stuff





Tomorrow gonna be finishing the head if the head is done if not gonna be taking out the pistons n what not

More head stuff -.- never ending AHHAA MORE HEAD just got that...

So friday I had a good solid 2 hours to work on the head getting it ready or the new step 2 262 brian crower cams and brian crower ti valve springs and retainers check it out so clean prolly going to paint the out side hi temp silver make it cleaner

heres kind of a before shot after I took it out side and hosed it down





After shots I was working the head with the fine hair wire brush attachment in a drill then used small wire brushes the exhaust ports were a bitch to clean and get in too





after all of that I took it to the solvent tank for more cleaning and de greasing and stuff then I risned it out with water then I stuck it in this thing I forgot to ask again what its called but it was in my previous post like a 200 degree bath of solvent to clean stuff out and put a protective coating like a huge oven with hot ass water if anyone knows the name tell me haha ill ask on monday




Had to wait 30 mins so me and eric cleaned up the valves before and after side by side. Gonna mic them monday see if I can even re use them if not gotta buy a new set




Fresh out the oven I did a pretty decent job!








This is where everything is stored lol



This build makes me sad and happy at the same time. I thought I was going just for a stock re build but I said fuck it and get better parts now im broke as a joke im sure a lot of people are who owns these kind's of cars and motors thats it for now
