    RS Aizawa ITB 1.6 - valve stem seals - improvements while in the head ?

    Probably the biggest needs for doing valvetrain stuff is a spring compressor, a clean work surface, abundant lighting, and organizers, cups, or trays to keep components together.

    The first time I did a head reassembly was at a kitchen table. It surprised me how smoothly everything fit together.

    Should be rowdy but still streetable. What engine management are you using? Plans for indexing?

    Link G4X is waiting here in the box, though :-)

    Indexing is on the cards. I've got the Maruha adjustable gears.

    There's also a Finnish chap who published a goldmine of research on this subject... with the same spec cams.

    They're in and spinning freely

    Wouldn't want to run much more lift on this head without relieving the exit and entry path around the bucket orifices.

    I've measured the gap without any shims in yet so I know what to order.

    Those boring numbers are over @ http://www.mighty5s.com/thread/964/a...b-built-thread

    The good news is that the gaps (minus the 0.2 or 0.25 mm lash spec) are all OVER 1mm so I can easily order the lash caps without worrying about grinding them down.

    Just wanted to say that dealing with Cat Cams directly in Europe is a pleasure.
