    Default Patriot heads -pics-

    Here's some pics of the Patriot heads the second time around, with un finished seats, supposedly ready for a valve job.
    Here's what I started with (after re-doing the guides). It's hard to see, but I think one of the problems on these is that the seats are installed with the tops below the floor of the chamber. The arrows show the lip around the chamber where they cut a small counterbore raduis.


    This is after boring the intake throats to size and blending the chamber.


    5 angle intake cut w/ bowl already blended

    Here's after the ex valve job and the bowl blended, and some blending in the chamber. Notice the spark plug, though...the threads are covering one side, so...


    ...I had to relieve some material around the plug...


    ...and blend it in. Now the end of the plug is more evenly exposed.

    Here's the top side. Lots of sharp edges and casting flash. Virtually no deburring done by the factory. These drew blood the first time I picked one up.
    Hard to see in this pic, but I've blended the oil returns and deburred all the sharp edges.


    Loaded up and ready to rock. New intakes, customer's old (Ferrea) exhausts.


    Here they are installed on a Gen6 509 with new ARP studs and Cometic head gaskets, ready for the intake and 1071.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I can see the problem getting those red x's to come into spec. Call the manufacturer for new ones.
