Re: Grinding Valves

dont use to much paste...three blobs about the size of a match head should do fine..after about 30 seconds or so of grinding lift the valve and turn it 180deg and continue your after a nice clean dull looking line all around the seat and valve(no pitting).
personaly i dont bother with the fine paste (to sticky).

tip...if you stop hearing it grinding put a few drops of WD40 on the seat...makes your paste last longer.
