    I don't want to sound like a complete asstard, but you should texture the first bit of the intake ports with 40 and 60 grit canisters. Scrubbing motion.

    Fuel is heavier then air. Texturized intake ports fights against separation and promotes better atomization.

    I'd keep it as smooth as possible on the exhaust side, with a radiused valve seat.

    Either way bro, it looks f'ing beautiful. Too bad that work of art can't be seen when it's installed. =)

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Totally. I'm trying to work on my head as much as I can. I'm going to leave the valves and seats to the pros.

    Meanwhile I'm setting up my workbench and making an angled jig for my rotary tool for the intake ports...

    Oops, I said too much already. =)

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    To tell u the truth I'm not either (a fan of "all" the blue)... But I started with it n I gotta make the scheme look "good", cause I'm too far into it to change it...
    The paint Job is gonna be A black n white scheme along with the interior... The interior will have a few blue accents.. But I'm going to be sure not to over do that too...

    Nice work there, I agree on the port texture, but it's more critical in the manifold with carbs. on EFI the fuel is intected right at the ports so even if it sticks it wont be that bad.
