    These guys and their machine workshop toys I had to reface my cam journal surfaces to as they were severely chewed (the bed side of the journal was not anywhere near as bad as the journal caps - it was so bad I could jiggle the cam in the bed with the tappets completely backed off). I used a length of pvc pipe and wrapped it in 400 grit wet and dry, then soaked it in oil. I built up the diameter of the pipe until it was close, sat it in the journal and then gently rolled it to dress the bearing faces. Not text book but it was the best way I figured I could get an even finish. I'd also suggest to radius off all the sharp edges in the combustion chambers and polish them up as this will reduce the chance of pre-ignition from carbon build up and help gas charge flows.
    p.s. love the carbie jigsaw puzzle, hope the dog didn't swallow the last piece

    radius off all the sharp edges in the combustion chambers and polish them up this has been done. Also, lapped the valves.

    Good save on getting that broken mounting stud out of the head. I think you're going to need a carb upgrade in the future as the port work will really get the head flowing. It looks like you've done this before hutch

    There all that way. The first gens don't have any oil to the cam journals. All it uses is splash and spray. The oil gets there from the timing chain.

    Hutch. Get rid of them jet valves...........................................

    HAHAHAHA I guess your going to visit the nostalgic repair man in the white outfit. The only problem is he has been to the taxidermy shop. He might look good from a distance but I would not want to see him up close.
