My New Overhead Cam Valvespring compressor came in yesterday.
Took the B0Z2 Honda head apart.
Not a single store sold it local. Other than Napa special order for $160.
I bought mine from a seller on fleabay in Nebraska. $50 bucks & free shipping.
Made by Neiko Tools. Made Nice. Worked Perfect.
Saved $110 Bucks..... :mrgreen:

Not liking 1 exhaust seat.
Let my bud Steve check it out.
Think it should be replaced.
His specialty. Has the Sunnen Head machine with sliding air table.

Let the pictures tell.
There is alot of science involved & lots of Finace skill.
Chose to keep it simple. Single angle.
Undercut a few seats.
I hate Some Stellite seats. Take forever to clean up.
Old school way still works.
Modern head machines cost $10- 50 K to buy.

I use Interference angles most of the time Grumpy.
Chevrolet, Pontiac, Olds, Ford & many others used.
My Sioux Valve grinding gear rebuilt many BBC & SBC & GTO's in the 1960's & 70's.
From a now long closed down Chevrolet garage my late Bud "B" worked at for 20 + years.
Only he used it other than myself now.

thanks for posting those pictures that are both interesting pictures, and clear enough to be useful as teaching aids , something that is not all that common on the internet

Insuring the Head deck sealing surface is clean & flat Rick.
The Honda head was resurfaced 2 years ago, 90,000 miles by my bud Steve.
On his Van Norman with CBN Cutters.
Gives correct RA or RMS Finish for optimal sealing & prevent head gasket creep movement.

your either a better mechanic than I am or at least you have a great deal more tolerance for working on over head cam , import car engines,and front wheel drive cars which I abhor,
congrats on an obviously complicated job , that was well done!
Ive worked on enough of those import cars in the past to have developed a firm conviction they are best poked with a 10 foot long sharp stick and avoided like the black plague.....and yeah ,been forced several times to do repairs to family owned cars so I,m all too familiar with the cramped engine compartments and parts that only fit certain production months, etc.

Its real close to being done Grumpy.
change the oil & filter.
Fill the cooling system & bleed of air pockets.
Fasten up the exhaust system down pipe/ head pipe.
Install the accessory mini 4- groove serpentine belts for the Alternator, P/S, & A/C.
A once over & start it.
Too cold to repaint the valvecover in Black Crinkle . Only 30- 40 F outside.
Worked till Midnight last night. Got too cold & tired, was about 19-20 F.
A solid lash engine. Set Intake Valves to .004" Cold. Set Exhaust Valves to .007" Cold.
Spark plug Gap .040" - .042".
Feels Great to be Almost Done.... :mrgreen:

No Choice Grumpy. Had to learn years back.
I like BBC. Pontiac V8's, & Race Cars BETTER too.
