The engine was built by Mike Besic in April 1994, 17 years ago. I pulled the head just to see what condition it was in. The receipts listed all the components, and I knew the cams were way old school, but wanted to see how it looked internally. I knew it had never been raced with this engine, but I was surprised to find that there was insufficient run time to even seat the rings. Pistons had no build up, and wiped clean easily with a cloth....(see pics)
I pulled the intake valves and found all was in good order, but the large valves were too big for the seats so I reduced the OD down to 1.660 (1mm oversize rather than 2), reshaped the margins (rounded), swirl polished the backs, and put them back in the head.
I installed a pair of RJR 136 intake and RJR796 exhaust cams, and tomorrow will reasemble the motor.
Dropped off the GTA headers to be ceramic coated inside and out. Using the Titanium color ceramic on the outside.
I am going to modify a Euro 2 liter airbox to fit the 45 DCOEs to eliminate the air horns, and supply cold air from infront of the radiator.(similar the one in post 48 below, but 115 type, not 105 parts)
1st head with original cams
2-4th head redone
