Default Cleaning Valves

Here is a way to clean valves that you are going to reuse. You can use an ultrasonic cleaner or bead blast them but this is a way anybody in their garage can do.

Step one, get a piece of fuel line the diameter of the valve stem.





Step two place the fuel line over the valve stem



Step 3 insert the valve into a drill. Do not clamp it super tight like a drill bit.


Step 4 use a red scotch bite pad and hold it on the valve while spinning the valve in a drill. I do them in my parts washer but you can also use carb cleaner as a cleaner and lube. Be sure to move the scotch brite around the valve do not hold it in one place



Blow dry clean and wala

I have no intention of doing my own valve cleaning, but is is still a very cool and interesting post.

Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you

I'm in the process of modding my CeeBee so I thought I would post it. I didn't figure to many people will be going this far themselves
