Hi .......... need my head skimming.
To have a flat face on the business end of the head do I need to
A) position the cam so all valves are closed or
B) take the cam out so all valves are closed
as I assume they cant mc the face with valves sticking up.

Regards David

Hi

When I have had heads skimmed in the past, they have all been "bare", ie everything off. You will also need to ensure that all of the residue of the maching is removed before you re-assemble, wich I don't think you could do (and I wouldn't like to try) with the head partially assembled.

I would suggest that you have a word with your machine shop to see how they want it

Regards

Trevor

bare is best, and its easier to clean before assembly, ive done on with throttle bodies and other bits on but its easier without.

Strip it to the bone!! If you leave the valves etc in they just gather abrasive dust and nicely wear away your motor...... lovely!!!
