I had never heard one was in the plans.
Yeah, basically the failure by Star Wars standards of Solo has Disney rethinking all the Star Wars universe films.  They will stick to running the Episodes and roll out the side films now and then, if ever at all.

Shame, I thought Rogue One was one of the better recent Star Wars films.

But then, too much of a good thing is...well not a good thing.

Rogue one is certainly one of my faves. 

And Solo is fun to watch too.  I really enjoy Ron Howard’s other films.  I think he’s great.

But, IMO he’s just not meant to direct a Star Wars film.

I am super delighted JJ Abrams will now be directing 9.

New lapping tool didn't work worth crap.  It would just slide on the valve.



Knocked off the shiny w 400 grit and then it went much better, though still not great, just usable.



Started w #4 valves as they both leaked a little after sitting overnight. 



Just cleaned them up minimally, After Irk strongly warned against the ease of cupping.









Then I learned this is doing it wrong.



This is proper...





No leaks and so I continue w the rest.

Also, all the O-rings are on site.   :)

Looks great.  Love you.   ;)

I've spent hours f-ing with lapping valves only to watch them worse.  I learned once the color is consistent, and they look good and polished, they are usually good to go.  If it took too much effort, they ended up cupped and sat in the hole too much, and didn't seal (or got worse).  I've also bought in cheap for a bunch of thumper dirt bikes with scorched heads and burnt valves, so my perspective is probably skewed

Thanks for everything my brother.

Even though sometimes your a pain in my butt and cause me extra work.

I really do learn a lot and you understand how important - to me - it is to do the best job I can do, w what I have.

You push my limits (  ;) and sometimes my buttons  ;)).

To be the best possible version of me.

I truly do appreciate your help, efforts and your time.

Have to be happy with that result.

So many orings. Bet they had fun picking them.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.
