      Back together. Here's the new "cold" head pressure. So far so good on the lifter noise. I'll need to wait till...

      This is really interesting. I flipped through my Bently and I can tell you that 16V's are supposed to have a simple relay with only 4 pins and no electronic gizmos inside. The fuel pump is controlled...

      I wouldn't think its a lack of fuel pressure if it happens at no-load and at full load. It sounds like an ignition problem the way you describe it. The first thing that comes to mind is distributor...

      No, not really. A bolt through that hole would NOT give me enough travel. You can see in this pic that I moved the hole up a bit. I used a carbide burr. I checked the travel several times before...

      Thanks guys. My machinist already cleaned them up, well more than "cleaned" since we're talking .010" to .015", so I'll see how the stem height is and if needed, just buy new ones. He already cut the...

      No one in the 16v engine forum has any experience with something that comes up during a basic head rebuild? Has anyone ground valves and had any negative experience? Burned seats? What could happen?

      It's gotta be a bad bearing. The belt can't make that noise.

      Valve Grinding: Yay or Nay?

      All of my valves need from .010" to .015" of material ground from them to get them to be concentric again. The book says not to grind them. I'm thinking of calling its bluff. What have you gotten...

      They do look very well serviced. What did you do to get them looking like that? Did I miss that a few pages back? Is that paint or the natural plastic?

      Thanks. That makes sense. I did a little research and did see that it was a sort of warm up fuel pressure regulator. Man, these guys went through a lot of trouble with CIS to get things to work under...

      I mean the plate next to where the oil filter flange goes. That's blocking the crankcase breather right? Did fuel lines go there?

      It looks awesome. I think no oil will leak out of that engine purely out of respect. But I have a question. Where do the crankcase vapors go with the block breather plugged?

      Yes I just cut away one of the four tabs on the distributor wheel with a dremel and rotated the distributor slightly to make sure it's lined up correctly. I'm using poll-mode for the cam input.

      Awesome. The bay looks very clean and overall OEM plausible. The stock air box is cool. I just installed the JBperf board too and found out that you had to ground all 3 grounds. No fried drivers for...
