Cleaning heads and Valves
#1
What is the best way to clean up the heads? I also want to clean the valves up. Can you wire brush the valves on a grinding wheel (changing stone to brush)

Thanks

I took mine to a machine shop and had them hot tanked. Only cost a few bucks and they look brand new when done. Also had them magna fluxed to check for cracks. Just a good piece of mind for a few bucks.

Yes, you can wire brush the valves.
Except if they are multi groove stockers from a 351C, don't.
Deposit them into the nearest trash receptacle.
Quickly.
Just ask Turtle...
