    Great job.
    I also did my coolant pipes last week. How did you get your valves so clean, what product / tool did you use? Are the heads still on the car?

    The heads are still on the car, the intake manifold is off. I rotated the engine to work on closed valves and used a pick & shop-vac to get the bulk of the crud. I then used brake cleaner, a toothbrush, and disposable shop towels.

    OK, I give that a try, have the intake off the car. Some valves seem more dirty then others on my car.

    I also have the OEM exhaust removed, so I'm able to easily turn the crank by hand (and only work on closed valves.)

    Those valves look like you actually pulled them from the head. Good job.

    Thanks man!



    Today I adjusted all the valves, and cleaned & reinstalled the valve covers:

    Water pump is on the way, should have it installed before the weekend.

    I'm still on schedule to have it running this month.
