    Head warpage specs?

    I was looking at manual and it says .0006 on warpage. I have a spot in between the cylinders that .0008 doesn't pass through. .0007 will pass but is tight. Wondering if this is too much before installing head gasket? Will the head gasket fill this in or what?

    While you have the head off probably worth getting it machined true

    through the cam gear hole opening once the sprockets removed...

    When you undo the bolts on the running gear, there is a cam retainer at the end of the head. It's held by the shaft of the running gear.

    The retainer will lift out so you can slide the cam thru the front of the engine.

    Will that cause the valves to hit or anything?

    These heads need to be very flat in order to seal properly. Send the head to me and ill deck it for you.
