Reassembling the Head

A lot of the tricky stuff was already done by the machine shop (seating the valves).


  • The surface of the cylinder head and surface of the block should be spotlessly clean before assembly. In particular they need to be clean of oil (which is difficult because they will have been oiled to prevent rust).
  • It is essential to use new head bolts and to make sure they are torqued inn order and to specification.
  • Clean everything. :(
  • Always check everything!
  • Follow the Manual!
