I am kind of OLD (73) for a student ----- I feel like I will never grow up ? BUT I always scored high on maturity testing. So how do I learn ? -----I listen and read and experiment. ----yeah I survided a LOT of explotions and fires and --- getting smacked in the kisser twice. Not being a Mechanic when I go to a repair shop ---my eyes are like a Radar and my Brain like a sponge. So one nice summers day I walsed in to the Aircraft Engine Shop , in Sandy Cameron land ---at Carp Airport Ont. ------On the table was a cylinderhead upside down ----off a 12 cylinder Allison from an old P 38 parked outside. Well the boss was in the process of grinding valveseats. ----a lot of them in those. He was grinding away --- but every time he looked at the seat ---it added to the wrinkles on his face. Finally he said give me a hand putting some pressure on this stone. And pressure we used but to absolutely no NO effect. -----Now stones are color coded --like white grey or green etc. I think he was using white. --------That was when I learned about "Stellite" seats. See James Hansens bit about Stellite. ---- If you can afford Stellite seats ? thats the way to go. I just phoned about exast valves for 1.6L turbo BowWow 13 dollars each Capilano 70 dollars each. Brand new Cylinderheads are in stock at BowWow. Hagar. PS : Price is in Canadian dollars.
