Eight valves = zero leaks.  :)

Sat for about 15 minutes per side filled w alcohol.

Now, pulling them all out again to finish cleaning carbon deposits, clear out alcohol, lube stems and install guide seals.   :P

I've found isopropyl to be good at loosening/softening deposits, too.

I believe you’re right.  No longer than mine sat.  Some seemed a bit softer.

A long day.

Tried something new as per Kanticoy.

To help ensure no jacked up rings. 

I installed the pistons into the jugs first, then installed the pins and lock rings into the rods.

It was a tight working space but it went pretty well, once I got my damned bifocals adjusted to see.   ;D

Nice. So clean inside.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
