Grinding the valves
Published:  28 August, 2012

Whenever you strip an engine down it's vital to keep all the components you remove from the cylinder head in the same order for rebuilding. Traditionally, mechanics used a piece of cardboard punched with holes to keep the valves in the right order, but engine component firm Burton Power has a better solution.

The new Cylinder Head Component Storage Rack is a strong and rigid rack with integral trays to accept camshafts, valves, springs, rockers and collets (check) in exactly the correct order, ready for reassembly. There are 16 clearly numbered storage locations. Everything is kept together in one place, minimising the risk of losing vital parts and the racks even stack - making them ideal for engine workshops seeking to reduce storage space.
