Default Re: Valve seat issues

Don't know if the heat did it Billy, even in this state you could still balance a nickel on it while it ran.

This engine does not have hardened seats. They (the shop) replaced them in the 1929 8, don't know why they decided not to do have them do this one.

None of the odd spot pairs are perpendicular to the crankshaft, they are all on some diagonal variation. If there was a wobble with the cutter could it have induced this pattern? I'm missing how.

Bob, the guides are original he says.
