Cam advice 470 (promise I searched)

So it's likely a 462?

Yes.

The "470" was built using a +5 stroker kit. Those kits have been discontinued I believe.

Getting ready to order a shim kit and a few other things.  Anyone know where I can find the correct head gasket? I'm stumped.

Also, do I need a new base gasket if I didn't take out the last 2 bolts on the side holding the cylinder down?

I've been soaking the head/ valves in carb cleaner to cut some of the carbon and i haven't had any leak down in 2 days, so the valve seats I assume are good.

However there is a ton of build up inside on the exhaust side. Not sure why, but they are as filthy as my piston was. I'll clean those up before I try to remove them.

Going to order a head gasket online tonight and then I should be ready to start assembling once it's all cleaned up

Yeah, that's what I said. Lol 🤣

I was doing a search for repair on a head that I bought, and that was the vernacular that landed the most hits. Some place that does KTM heads said they can do the Suzuki.
