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. :mad:
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.

OK guys...sorry, I don't have the banner at the top of my page that has the link to the photo gallery, it's just a big blue square...I tried doing these as an attachment, but I guess it didn't work. What's weird is, it works on my computer. Must be an internal thing. I don't know what to do at this point except try to get ahold of Rex or Admin and see what's up.
Sorry...I worked on those pics till 1:00 this morning!:)st

where do you have them hosted(the pics)
this is one on your You shot it album

That's the first pair with the valve job sunk, and the heads of the valves below the tops of the seats.
Can anyone see 5 angles on that intake valve job???

Scott, it looks like you put in the pics as attachments and then tried to link to the full size pics? If so, you have to leave the original attachments in your post. You see them on your end because they are in your computer's temp storage as a result of having already viewing them.

Makes sense. Thanks.

Is that .100 you see at the top of the intake,right where the glare on the valve face is pointing the seat? Looks like you put a 2.19 valve where a 2.30 belongs. No, they did not do that to get the proper spring height. NOBODY WOULD DO THAT!
