Most pleased
Rather ugly inside at the mo, but I do have a full GTS dash and HQ console..
Just in need of a good dash pad

Lapped Valve

Lapped Valve

This is a clean and wiped stainless steel valve for a dedicated gas engine (202 blue)
I have lapped with course, medium then fine grit compound and this is the result.

I spent a minute or so on each application (Total 3min Lapping)

I have noticed that only 2 3rds of the machined edge has evidence of grinding, I am guessing this is correct and ok, to allow for future lapping.

All carbon was removed from seats and valves before lapping.

Please share your thoughts. I have 11 more to do. The petrol test will soon show if I have a good seal or not.

Head prepped and ready for Lapping (I THINK)
I am hoping that the carbon on the seats will come off during lapping.
The valves are clean and free of carbon.

Time to Lap the valves.

Hope I do it right LOL.

The valves are stainless steel and I have hardened seats so.
I'm guessing "fine paste" (Maybe medium for stainless and hard seats) and lap with a hand lapper for at least 5min per valve.

Help Needed

Would any body out there be able to tell me what site I could look up to find what colour interiors they put into Wb Statesman 83 models, and find matching colour to trim numbers on plate under the bonnet.

Maiden voyage after 25 years!

Maiden voyage after 25 years!

After 25 years or more, I finally got to drive the ole HK kingswood out the gate and on the roads...
Got a temp permit from Vic Roads for a couple of weeks to get things sorted for the road worthy. And last weekend I took her for a spin.

Started well and after a few minutes (about10) of warming up... I was able to take the old bus for a run. Engine sounded a bit funny, but fingered it just needed to have the GUNK burnt out!

Was very careful as the car had not been driven for 25 years or more!

After about 6 miles, all going well I thought, I decided to drop in to a mates place to show him the old girl running!

Drove up.... First thing he said was .... That doesn't sound right... Pop the bonnet! A few seconds later he said switch her off..
