Cylinder heads now fully rebuilt

Update Report - June 1, 2021

In tearing down the cylinder heads we discovered some serious (man made) damage to the cam saddles. Thankfully we were able to correct this issue by performing an align hone to both heads. We also found some corrosion damage in the head deck surfaces, but this has already been remedied after a short visit to the Team CJ Coachworks.

Mismatched valve seals?

Excessive wear on valve stems

Corroded areas of corrosion of the cylinder heads
will be welded and resurfaced
