looking for local machine shop

Recommended Posts

anyone have suggestions for a machine shop in the auburn, wa area? i called a local honda shop and they want $48 per valve seat to grind em. thats with me brining the head in with the valves already out. seemed a bit high.

also anyone know if the valves can be ground? i heard the valves themselves have a hardening treatment or something on them and should be replaced if bad.

How bad are the seats and valves? I would first buy a can of machinist dye and go to your local auto parts supplier and pick up valve grinding paste in course, medium and fine. and do it yourself. That is of course if they are not completely destroyed.
