    Please find attached for your entertainment my latest video featuring the Crusty Flatty.
    If you like it please reply here and give me a bump. Cheers!
    It's beginning to start to come together. I check the cam, scare up some lifters and then tackle the tricky job of setting valve lash. These are non adjustable lifters and with the deep cleanup cuts on the seats I have to trim the ends of the valves quite a lot. This is getting to be a dying skill, and once again I'm more or less self teaching and going from first principles. I must stress I'm not an expert and offer this for entertainment only. I do share some little insights though that may help you if undertaking a similar task. The last part was previously published so you may have seen it before. Thanks for watching. Mart.

    EDIT: Also see response down below: All was not right!!!

    My Friday is nearly complete. Did the art show thing. Watched my serial installment here. Too early yet for happy hour on the west coast so I guess I'll return calls for a bit. Thanks Mart!

    Cheers guys.

    Bump for the Saturday crew.

    I've been informed the valves with the hollows are normally associated with being used on the inlets. I'm going to investigate but will probably try and scare up a set of valves clearly marked EX.

    Thanks for the interest.

    Mart.
