My client dropped off his 20V silvertop for a bit of massaging

Mix in Toda springs, and Tomei Poncams, and stir to 7800 rpm.... for now.... Big Grin



More to come.... Hurray!

OST-035: Silver Blaze
Although the head looks pretty clean, and it is(was), the exhaust ports are still moderately heavy with carbon, so for that reason, and I want to make sure the head is capable, I've sent it out to get cleaned and pressure checked. I'm also having it checked for flatness.



A bit more about this build.....

My client will be using Toda AE101 pistons

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

they carry a 4.6cc dome, static compression will be around 12 to 1 while using a .8mm head gasket - as per Toda. He will also be running Toda's AE101 valve springs - good to 11 mm of lift

He will be using 20V Poncams

(responding to "having it checked for flatness") - Feeling sorry or tossing them a bone for goodwill?

How about a hardness test, the Toymods guys just love that BS. :smile:

client wants a bare minimum cut - .001", maybe .002" if required. the flatter the surface the lower the cut......

I've heard of testing the 7M heads... I've not heard of people checking the 4A heads....


Had to order some new equipment.... my 16V spring remover/installer doesn't fit the pockets the 20V springs fit into... so....

oldeskewltoy Wrote:Had to order some new equipment....

actually quite a bit more.....

For the past 5 years I've used mostly Dremel motors(5), and flex shafts (4). I also was using a Black and Decker RTX (about 60% more amperage/torque) than the Dremel. I've used the RTX almost exclusively for that past 18 months, enjoying the torque advantage it offered.

Well, in the middle of OST-034 the RTX began to die. So it was finally time to really upgrade.....

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

I've purchased the 1/6 hp Foredom SRX, along with 2 handpieces, the larger of which you see in the above photo. For now I'm keeping the Dremel for finish work since it does still have a higher maximum rpm - useful in getting that nice finish.




More to come..... Hurray!

over $500 deep... not sure forever... but they better outlast my Dremels.... Huh



from another forum Wrote:That's a nice looking head! Big Grin

It will only get better looking........

Well... that took a week??? to get this thing cleaned, and pressure checked.... I'm guessing they were busy???? Sleepy


ANYWAY..... the head checks out, and it is flat! this means a cut of .002" or less will provide the mating surface for a good metal gasket seal.


This head will be getting half a valve job.... yep, half a valve job!

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

The intake seats, already with 3 angles, will get a very fine (400 grit) lap in, while the exhausts will get a full on 3 angle.


and I've begun the port work.... the intake side is all new, like OST-034 was. Buuut... unlike OST-034, there is a fair amount of port to bowl transition blending required. As to how much.... I'm following OST's first rule of porting... do no harm, so could I take more.... maybe.....

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]


now as far as the exhaust goes.... [Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

but the exhaust I've got well in hand.... [Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

Here is a view down(up?) the bowls to the roof... notice the ledge(angry eyebrows)...???

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]

Anger removed... and all without Botox....


and a view at the short radius, and the transition to the port from the bowls

My math comes out to a few hundredths of a point different then Toda's, but for sake of chamber volume confirmation... 36cc seems to be the Silvertop's chamber volume [Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-035: Silver Blaze]
