The Valves are Ferrea Super Alloy Valves.
Not Cheap or inexpensive Gentleman.
But Do cost less than Manley Titanium Valves custom made for a Pontiac V8 at $130 each.... :mrgreen:
Fixing it right for the wifee'

Honda comes apart tomorrow, Sunday. Take more photos.

WOW! Ive got to say thats impressive!
I could not work on a car at single digit temps unless I was forced into it!
no doubt your EARNING your pay at those temps and under those conditions, Id sure have the wife fix me a good hot meal , some hot coffee and a shot of hot brandy before turning in, and throw a extra blanket on the bed after that!
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

thats unfortunate, i dont see any piston damage... hows the cylinder walls? looks like it just spit out the piece of that valve... good news i guess if it was gonna break good that it broke nicely

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!

Having in the past worked on toyotas, nissans and hondas I try hard to avoid a repeat, job on those engines like the BLACK PLAGUE!
I totally rebuilt my datsun inline 6 back in about 1989 and while it ran great after the rebuild, I hated working on it and it was BY FAR the easiest 6 cylinder in-line I ever worked on,as it was a rather nice rear wheel drive truck, I refuse to work on front wheel drive, import cars... PERIOD!

Working on Corvettes & Race Cars 50% of the time was a Reality before that Democrat Jackass & Fucken Bankers Crashed All.
I work in a Unique shop. Big Diesel shop on 1 Side.

yeah, i once tryed to change the water pump on a VW diesel.
omg, had to take the timing belt off.. and needed a special tool and procedure for the cam and injector pump timing.
I just give up, and never worked on anything but american v8 or v6(and the 6.5 td).

The 1St car I ever put a timing belt on was A Ford Escort GT.
About 1990-91. I hated it too. Practice makes perfect.
The more you do, more versed you become at it.
These High Tech Single & Dual Overhead cam engines are here to stay.
Only the Corvette 2013-2014 is pushrod overhead valve layout still.
Her Honda is old school now. No Variable valve timing. No VTech.
Gets decent gas milage. Why I am saving it also.
Luberal Democrats want $7-12 buck Gasolne prices. $15 buck a gallon diesel.
Grumpy & me hate those Demo Demon Basterds.
Can't trust them. Give them an inch & they take 100,000 miles instead.
This thread can teach us old school mechanics to learn & survive with New overhead stuff.

I like the Shot Gun Semi Hemi Rail Better Grumpy.
Phil would Twin Turbo Either for us.
Just a Legendary Engine.
Race only original .
Unique to say the Least.
I am Picturing Mickey Thompson driving A Shotgun after he left Pontiac & went Ford Racing.
He never could Top his 406 mph run in 1960 with his 4 Pontiac engine Streamliner Challenger 1.
Tried with Fords.
The Pontiac engines were 2 415 ci Strokers.
1 pair of 450 ci Stroker Ponchos.

i tell you what... i genuinely want to convince the owner of the ZR1 to let us turbocharge it for him... hes a purist tho. we had to twist his arm to put the five spoke ZR1 wheels on it (the 335/35/17 look small out back)

however ive tinkered with alot of DOHC car in the past, all ford modulars.

you want a sleeper 32 valve car? drop a 76mm turbo in a 98 lincoln mark viii and back it with a built c4 and a gear vendors over drive. the stock TEKSID block is good to 1200+ hp (ive witnessed cars with between 300-1200 hp race with teksid blocks but ive read that guys have put 2000 hp through them) aluminum with cast iron sleeves, six bolt mains, lighter and stronger (power rating) than the 03-04 terminator cobra IRON BLOCK motors.

i prefer the 98 only because it has body colored grille and the nicest interior and trim packages (did i mention all mustang wheels from 94-2013 seem to look awesome on these cars?)

wow we got off topic here!

update: john milhovetz apparently ran teksid blocks in his 2000+hp mercury cougar race car
