Alloy welding… Done.

Posted: October 20, 2012 in Head

The head was returned from Radtec on Thursday afternoon. The head fillet plate will have to be set and then milled to create the flat face for the head closing plate to fit and seal against. The cam oil feel drilling has been welded up and will now require re-drilling on an angle to match the block. The oil return to sump galleries have also been filled. The head will now go to the machine shop to be skimmed and milled and then its final modifications will take place prior to rebuilding.





While the head is away again for final machining, I have ordered new valve stem seals and these can then be fitted when its returned and completely cleaned again.


The block is still at the machine shop – hopefully it will be returned next week and the bottom end build can start!
