Hmmm slight change of plan with this now Audi S3 - Page 6 Icon_silent .. finally got everything back in my workshop. And things should hopefully start to move along, although very slowly Audi S3 - Page 6 Lol

Yesterdays little job strip the valves from the head. Got all the exhaust valves out but my spring compressor doesn't fit the smaller valve springs so going to make one at the weekend that does fit and then continue...

in the mean time, an oily biscuit tin full of valves

I wasnt planning to, but atleast this way ill know what the engine will be like. Bit of risk buying a second hand one and reconditioned ones are too much money Audi S3 - Page 6 Lol

The old girl is looking a bit sorry for itself now Audi S3 - Page 6 Icon_rolleyes hasnt been washed since this happend and its quite a dusty place Audi S3 - Page 6 Icon_lol i ought to get a cover for it really Audi S3 - Page 6 298631

You reckon? Audi S3 - Page 6 Icon_lol

Audi S3 - Page 6 Lol Oh it will be fine. Its not 'real' dust.. theres a feed mill in the next barn so its just dust from that. Its a really soft fine dust (similar to flour), you could probably use a soft brush and get it all off dry without leaving a scratch.. but when i do wash it it will be done properly.

It had a good thick coat of pollish before going in aswell so that will help.

Managed to bodge an adaptor for my industrial size compressor so i can remove the smaller of the 20 valves from the head.. nice bit of steel pipe with some slots cut in and a 17mm nut welded in the end does the job..
