Re: Valve seal

Just a quicky chaps, taken the cams out this afternoon and observed this amount of oil on buckets n01, whilst buckets n04 are nearly dry. Being as though n01 pot was the problematic one, is this a clue as to what's been going on, or is just because it had been on the sidestand. 20180929_172146.jpg 2...

Re: Valve seal

Just done a cold compression test on all 4 pots before I start anything and it's reading 105psi on all four, even with a drop of oil on top to see if anything's leaking. Is this reading ok , considering the engine was cold. Couldn't do a warm one as id removed the exhausts.

Re: Base Gasket Problem?

Im no expert on this matter, but im in a similar position myself. If you take a look at my earlier post re VALVE SEAL, there's a comment on there from Al re oil seeping across the base gasket when you remove the head. Just food for thought.......

Re: Valve seal

The head was done as part of a full engine build. It was in poor condition and required new guides, all valves re cutting in etc.etc. The guy did good job really, these things happen, its just a pi..er after just 300m.

Re: Valve seal

Thanks A1, its always hard to describe smoking accurately, but its not chucking it out, i would describe it as moderate, more so on initial start up.
what i am thinking of doiñg is removing the barrells anyway whilst im doing the job, and just checking the ring's .
