More on the shovelhead problems

So time to tear into the shovelhead and get it back together.

Yes, that's were the wrist pin keeper used to be.

When your oil looks like metal flake paint there will be problems.

A lot of carbon, too.

On to the front head. This headgasket was leaking, too,

Back to no top end again.


  1. Hi. How did you clean your shovel's cylinder heads? Mine look pretty much the same and I wondered if I have to replace them. Thx

  2. I eventually had them reworked by a pro.
