Been a while since I've been to flat rock (a figure 8 school bus rally was the last visit lol) I've been dying to get back there and have thought of entering the dirt ring there one day best of luck and thanks.Hi Mydogisshaggy. It is commendable that you are willing to tackle the build up o a Ford six head. Porting and polishing the ports and chambers is a good way to get more power from the engine. Even the novice builder with basic tools can improve things a lot.
What looks to you like a drill holding a valve against a grinding wheel is actually a Sioux valve grinding machine. Do NOT try to grind the valves in an electric drill. The valve grinding machine is a very precision machine that will precisely restore the surfaces on the valve. Some processes are better left to pros with the right equipment. I bet if you took just your valves to an automotive machine shop the cost to just grind your valves would not be much.
Likewise grinding the seats requires very precise control of the grind stones, with frequent precise dressing. Leave that to somebody with a seat grinder. The valve guides often need reconditioning before seat grinding can be done.
Good luck with your project.
There are a couple of groups in NW Ohio that race vintage cars. Also, I have been invited by ARCA to bring the car to their old-timers weekend at Toledo and Flat Rock Speedways. We'll see.
