  • Project "I love pain so I'll replace my valves"

    Not really a project but closer to masochism. Worried about the 99% salt water riding for the past 7 years I decided to go ahead and replace the valves on my 05 RXT. After a smooth start, scrapped knuckles a few beers and some cursing I got the head out. Crappy pics but you get the idea. Now I'm scared to get the cam timing wrong when I go to put back together....which knowing my luck won't be for another year or two as everything I touch always goes horribly wrong.

      You will do just fine. The cam timing isn't as hard as you think it is.

      What valves are you going to use? I highly recommend the Ferrea valves. They're actually cheaper than a set of the OEM valves.

        How many hours? Were you fogging? If so it doesn't look like it was working

            160 hours on it. It was fogged but not as often as I should have. Having only dealt with 2 smokers it was something I overlooked.
            While I have the head out, anything else I should do? is that oil jet upgrade worth it? I forgot to order an exhaust gasket from the 4tec store when I ordered the head gasket and bolts so I'll be placing another order.

            Edit, I guess riva valves. I missunderstood Chris.

              Chris is going to install Ferea (I think that's what he said he was going to use). While I have the head out, anything else I should do? is that oil jet upgrade worth it? I forgot to order an exhaust gasket from the 4tec store when I ordered the head gasket and bolts so I'll be placing another order.
              There is no gasket for the exhaust

              The oil jet is good for higher RPMs, but you may as well do it while the head is out. hate to go back in there again...

                  +1 go with the ferrea valves in the store....The timing isnt bad at all. Get everything locked down then fine tune it from there.

                        No updates yet, had to make an emergency trip back home and haven't touched it. Haven't even decided if I should have it ported or if I should do the oil jet. Still need to find the procedure how to time the cam.

                            I know where the cam lock goes, the hole in the head near the gear, but how do I lock the crank?

                              Some people use a drill bit or a socket extension to put in the hole to lock the crank.

                              You can download the 04 manual HERE. No complete 05 manual available,but Its close enough for what you are looking for...
