    Some people don't accept that there are many ways to do a thing. I love your videos. Don't let those shit comments go in to you. Some people don't get it and they will never learn new ways of doing things. Love to watch your videos. I can close my eyes and smell the feums of oil and metal. Love your work

    More than one way to get something done, better to have the ability to do it this way than to only know how with the proper tools.

    Whats wrong with lapping? If you got crappy seating, its probably a good idea.

    I've done so many 356/360/390/428 heads over the years,one of the worst factory machined head to begin with. Nice when you correct all the problems. I seem to recall heads with 1 or 2 spring seats taller than all the others on one end of the head.

    Next time just try welding a bolt into the plug. Easier to get a good weld onto the bolt and it shrinks the plug a bit as well. It’s harder then most people realize to get a good weld on the inside of a nut.

    Just a humble observation here but at .060" over would it have not been better too to press in 8 sleeves to keep it nice and stout and closer to the original measurements? How much casting material is still left around each cylinder at this point that any cylinder may be prone to a crack is the reason why I ask? Under no way to critique the work, HELL NO, great work!

    How often do you need to service the mill for decking blocks? Does the cutting tool last 'X' amount of passes before it must be replaced, or does it stay sharp for years?

    I was gonna say pull the ol Massey Ferguson tractor in and pull a spark plug and put an air line in the hole. Hold er up 'round 2500 ripums and it'll do the job.

    The classic push pull hang and even kick method and quick but precise statement of "That ain't going anywhere" is what built this countrys infastructure and defeated the Nazis in WW2 and I'm glad that it continues today... The French did not believe in this statement and we see what happened to them...French fry's. "That isn't going anywhere"

    Fun fact: The 340 V8 block is the same casting as the odd/even fire 231 V6. The 215, 300 and B. 350 are the same too! Beautiful machining work!

    I went to school and got trained to do this and was given recognition for having the best built engine in 40 years in the school this was at the top automotive engineering school in the country or it was 10 years ago but the school has since shut down the program as the new director is a libtard dumbass but since I graduated I haven’t found a shop near me that does this that’s still in business seems most people just replace instead of rebuild it’s sad

    Im a lathe setup machinist and I use a few fowler products. Id rate em fairly high for a budget inspection tool. Although our shop invested in 10 fowler 6 or 8 inch calipers and the id blades were not to spec. My 12 inch digital calipers I swear by for referencing tho.

    I personally prefer using engineers blue as it's easier to apply to awkward valve seats but I never tried using marker pens. I'll have to give ita go.

    I'm curious as to why you drill out ALL guides rather than just driving them out with an air chisel in the first place??? Most international harvester heads the guides are easily removed with an air chisel . On rare occasions you will encounter a stubborn guide but they are the exception not the rule. Certain applications are typically stubborn and do require drilling. JD 4010/early 4020 guides can be a pain and typically require drilling. I don't bother even wasting my time trying to remove them anymore , I just install guide liners inside the factory guide.
