CYLINDER HEAD REPAIR

CYLINDER HEAD REPAIR

One of my specialties is BMW Cylinder Head repair. I began doing head work at about 14 years of age, learning from my father. As I gained experience, I learned the significance of valve stem to guide fit, valve face to seat  contact and the effects of the various grinding angles used.  I have learned a fair bit about the metalurgy involved and it's effect on clearances and durability.

Many people speak about three and five angle valve jobs as if some kind of magic results from their use. In fact, the "extra" angles ground or cut on the seats are simply to make the contact area a consistent width and to place the valve correctly. Fourth, and fifth angles-or more-are to improve air flow.

Custom Brake Lines

There are now several companies making braided hoses, but mine are the only ones made by someone who is intimately familiar with BMWs and classic Triumphs. If you have a problem with the fit, or need a custom hose, you can call me. You’ll be speaking to the guy who makes them and has probably installed them on a bike just like yours.
