it just so happns that this little endeavor is in line with the next semester of school covering engine repair A1 of the ase general automotive competencies... so rather than rebuild some shitty old honda motor thats been shit on a hundred times, im bringing my own motor to school where ill have a somewhat more expansive set of tools to do my teardown (then take to the machine shop for work) and then assemble it back at school. i guess its gonna be an expensive semester.
just be aware theres at least a slight potential for any engine or component that's being worked on and/or left at a school ,to be intentionally screwed up, or stolen when you have any large group working on your engine in any environment that you can,t strictly control and limit access too,on any of those parts being worked on most of the time!the reason I bring this up,
is that I know of a past experience where one of my friends brought a set of very expensive donovan 417 cylinder heads into a trade school shop class, that was teaching the correct use of milling machines, and the accessories and how to precisely work on automotive repair work etc. too use as a teaching aid, too use as a demonstration tool, and have the the valve guides replaced, and the heads mysteriously "WALKED AWAY the second night they sat on a shelf in a locked room. the window too the room was busted the alarm was triggered, but the school claimed they were not responsible for private property left UN-attended, on their property and he never got the heads or compensation.
his intention was too save a bunch on the labor costs and learn from a very experienced instructor that had offered anyone in the class that would bring in any of the parts they had from any engine they owned, too have repair work done as the class progressed.
yeah! he should have carted the heads back and forth each day with him, but thought keeping them in a locked closet at the trade school would be safe!
