i finially got around to changing the head gasket on my ed yesterday all removed , got the head off and going to get it shaved 10 tho the head and bore look good still as you can still see the hone marks in the bore and the head is pretty clean from carbon also i going to get some port work dont to the head too while its off the valves have been lapped and 3 angle cut the block has been cleaned from all the old head gasket and wiped down with metho and coved with a lean dry sheet. I also am doing the BBM conversion on the car while i have the head off, makes sense to me haha ill try get some pics up today of it so far and thanks again to (sloxr6) for selling me the AU head gasket he had and posting it to me cheers for that ill keep you all updated on the head and porting as my new cam is sitting here with my vernier cam gears an BBM conversion so its going to be a busy week i guess i cant get the head shaved untill tuesday so im going to go start on the other job (polishing the mags) sanding back and polishing the ed xr6 5 spoke mags haha FUN!!

Just be carefull if you are doing any valve de-shrouding in the chamber, the AU gasket has a smaller diameter cylinder hole by 2mm than the standard gasket and can protrude into the chamber if to much material is removed while de-shrouding. Just fitting the AU gasket will raise your compression ratio by about .4 ie: 9.0 to 9.4, something to keep in mind when shaving the head.

ive got the AU Head gasket here ready to go on and the head is getting 10 thou removed to bump up the compression but with my ACL rebuild kit standard i should have about 8.9:1 and with the AU MLS gasket maybe 9.3:1 plus what ever the 10 thou will make as a difference im getting the port work dont at a Qualified head shop and they already know there is a Au steel head gasket going on the motor?

ok i got the head back this morning ported and polished and wih 10tho removed put the AU MLS head gasket on and the New bolts (AU Multi Layer Steel ( MLS ) gasket - 30nm then 120 degrees) and tightened now still waiting on my BBM to turn up to install it also i have the Vaccum solenoid switch but no plug any help on what i could do as the wreckers are too far from me to go see them could i just possibly solder some wires to the pins? if so any one be able to tell me what pin is what? (earth and power)? please

On a good note i have the cam installed and the vernier cam gear on and all together. And half way through polishing the EL rocker cover (i soda blasted it to remove the paint and gunk) cheated at that part but made it alot quicker to get sanded back
