So it's not water cooled then?  ;)

Good work on the engine, brave to split the case and disassemble it entirely, although it sounds like you've been there before.

Lord God! I would be shitting bricks! At least you had the foresight to put things in bags.

Sorry about the flood, glad you are still moving forward. Many an engine gets to here then never makes it back.

The cylinder head came back from Chris at Schumann Motor Works today.

Valve seats recut and combustion chambers cleaned.




Intake and exhaust ports cleaned.




New valve guides installed. Modern positive seal valve seals installed.  New custom made valves installed to adjust valve length and keeper position to account for deeper valve seat.

Cylinders are back from Andrews Motorsports in Concord NC with a fresh bore and new Wiseco forged pistons.  They set the ring gaps for me too.  Sooooo clean!
