It's for a VW head, I need to replace the exaust valves. What do I gotta do?
come on help a brother out...
You're actually in the Garage, so everyone thinks this HAS to be a trick question..........
get a spring compressor, take the keepers out, remove valve, seal, spring, etc... grind stem, face, and seat, check guides, stuff like that? im kinda confused I rebuilt the heads on a 350 so i kinda know what im doing
I got lapping compound and a spring compressor, how do I actually grind them, you grind the stem and the face as well???Somebody got a step by step link to a write up or something???
I gotta get my wifes bus running again so I can actually work on my Blazer...
If you're just installing new valves thats it. Lap them in and go.
head off, springs and keepers out. lapping compound and a wood stick with a suction cup on the end. spin spin spin. You;re just lapping the seat surfaces. Don't be a yahoo and put a drill on the stem and reef on it.
And this would be why I asked you guys and didn't ask for help from my Brother, he suggested a drill...
Make sure you get ALL the compound washed off when you are done. It does REALLY bad things to valve stems and guides(Don't ask).
You got good replies. Just an additional comment- you can use a drill on the suction cup, saves your hands a bit. Don't grind by pushing and spinning fast, just lap slow and gentle like.
