Few shots Before we start any work. This one is pretty gunky.
Usually I get the teardown and inspection photos, not this time. Guess I was MIA when the crew was working on this one. I did get lots of cool shots of it completed. See below.
BUICK 350 VALVE JOB
Cylinder head work. Pressure test, Magnaflux for cracks, Resurfaced to a nice flat surface to mate up with the block. Grind valves, Cut 3-angle valve seats, Lap valves, Install new exhaust guide inserts, install new valve stem seals, clean, paint, and assemble.
The block came in extra dirty with lots of build up. Lots of elbow grease cleaned up this baby. It came back to life after we Bore and Honed the cylinders with proper crosshatch. Cleaned in hot tank to remove any metals. Then a few coats of paint.
New Buick engine parts ordered at correct sizing and ready for installation: Pistons, Rings, Cam/Main/Rod Bearings, Gaskets, Lifters, Freeze plugs, Timing Set, few Valves, and Oil pump.
Block work is finished. Valve Job in the works. Connecting Rods, Crank and Cam reconditioned-reground and polished and ready to go. Now we start building the Short Block.
