    I have a question about my exhaust valves. They have some sort of hard deposit hard to remove with a toothbrush on maybe less than half of them. The intake valves dont have any buildup just the exhaust.I let them soak overnight in seafoam, but they are still rocky like. Is this normal on the exhaust side? How can i remove this? 20161013_145445.jpg

    After inspecting my cylinder walls a little more i seen some scuffing on them. The factory crosshatch looks fine just the scuffing. Should i be worried about this?20161014_203542.jpg

    You didn't happen to do a compression test first?

    Looks like a hurt cylinder.

    If you can't get the foreign material removed from the valves, I would replace them, and properly lap new ones to the seat of course. Best time to do it

    I did remove almost all the crap off the valves. I didnt do a compression test but the car ran fine and the idle was fine when i took it down the car transport and into my garage.

    Yes barely though. Ok so if i do hone/bore my block will i need new pistons and pistons rings? What about the rods? Because if i take it to the shop for a bore or hone i have to remove the pistons either way. So again, will i need to get new pistons if i bore the walls? What about if i just hone the walls will i need new pistons? The pistons alone cost as much as my whole rebuild budget lol
