VALVES MAINTENANCE - CONTINUED
Grind four exhaust valve seats (7) and intake washers (8) to an angle of 30 degrees.
To reduce maximum seat angle, grind seat face to 15 degrees.
Grind seat face to 15 degrees, if necessary.
Valves must be matched with the exhaust valve seat or intake washer with which they are measured. Mark
valve and matching valve seat or washer to identify matching sets.
Measure valve recess for four exhaust valve seats (7). Minimum dimension between combustion surface and exhaust
valve (9) face is 0.026 in. (0.66 mm).
Measure valve recess for four intake washers (8). Minimum dimension between combustion surface and intake valve (5)
face is 0.006 in. (0.15 mm).
Match and mark four exhaust valves (9) and intake valves (5) with their respective exhaust valve seats or intake wash-
Angle of exhaust and intake valves must be 29-1/4 degrees.
Grind four exhaust valves (9) and four intake valves (5).
Apply prussian blue to face of four exhaust valves (9) and intake valves (5) and install into matchmarked valve seat (7)
or intake washer (8) respectively.
In the following step, if blue is transferred to center of valve face, contact is correct. If blue is transferred to
top of valve face, lower valve seat or washer by grinding. If blue is transferred to bottom edge of valve face,
raise valve seat or washer by grinding.
Turn valve stem allowing valve face to lightly contact face of valve seat or washer. Remove valve. Observe blue trans-
fer, grind as necessary.
