I don't know the % make up of the guides in those chinese heads
just guessing by the looks of them and the ones ive seen go sloppy in one month of driving, I would say its over 2%

because even a normal cheap aL/bronze guide should last longer.

Re: Vortec intake runners

They are Chinese heads. I've fixed about ten sets exactly like that..I'm not color blind It was a heads up to the guy because I've got experience fixing those junk guides. Have you? Why would it matter if they had experience? They weren't giving advice on how to repair them. They were talking about...

Re: Progressive/Digressive rockers, flat tapppet..pros/cons?

Are you mocking it up using your actual running springs or some soft test springs? It’s not uncommon to lose some lift with high poundage running springs. Just tested some 1.65 T&D’s with soft springs to check clearances.. lift at retainer was pretty close through out the lift cycle. When tested wit...

Re: Have I ruined my vortecs

Re: Has racing been completely shut down?

Tracks here are only open for private testing. I want to go back to work. I'll take my chances with the China Flu, and may have already had it at the beginning of the year. Flu symptoms, test negative. Wife was around me and never got it. The economy is going to take a bit to recover, and we MUST s...
