Now that the head is cleaned and re-surfaced, its time for reassembly!

L-R: Head bolts, rocker assembly, push rods (4 spark plugs along the bottom)

Top-Bottom: Intake valves, intake springs, exhaust springs, exhaust valves

 

Engine block, sans head

Cleaned and re-surfaced head, with valves and valve springs inserted

One of the things I’ve realized with this project, is how much easier it has been than I thought it would be. Engines seem scary, they seem complicated, and while there are certainly nuances and tricks that the average person doesn’t have, with a bit of guidance they aren’t that hard to work on.

If you are there for the disassembly, then the reassembly isn’t too daunting.
