'51 Chieftain - On The Road

Recommended Posts


Last night I dismantled the valve block, and I'm glad I did.

A fair bit of band dust had collected in the bores and the valves weren't smooth to operate. 

I had avoided rubbing the valves down last time, but there were a few burrs and nicks on the valves that were causing them to get hung up, so those were very carefully removed with high grit paper.


I reassembled it all and now it's ready to go back in.

The truth will be in the way it drives.
