Heads are decked. Doing a quick lapping and I'll reassemble. I've decided I'm going to get this engine back together, pretty much as-is, then (down the road--hopefully I can get a couple years out of it) build a new one from new parts (w/lessons learned).

In which case would you need to cut the mating surface? New valves? Chipped?

No, just making sure they are all seated well. I had the valve stems trimmed so I would have more options with buckets, and didn't note which port each valve came from... So, I had to "start over."

After assuring me parts were good, No Limit Motorsports sent me these to replace the replacement.

WTF?? Beat to shit...









Am I to assume this is what Whiteline sells??

That's totally unacceptable from No Limit and Whiteline...trailing arms look good to say the least :P Do you think No Limit actually checked them?

They sent me a pic but it was hard to see anything, so they looked okay. Sucks because I've spent a ton of money with them (crank, rods, pistons, valves, cams, etc...).
