Just a little junk on top of those baffles could chew up a whole motor. It's also an excuse to drill and tap for bigger breather lines on the valve covers
    Russ Meeks of Finishline Coatings, who did the thermal dispersant coating, used paint removal gel and a heat gun to get the stock finish off, to get the surface he needed, for the coating. Van

    I went ahead and had the baffles removed, and they had a lot of carbonized oil on them. Glad I listened and followed your suggestion! Van

    i have a few questions. i just got my motor back from the machine shop but i intend to re-torque and re-seal a few areas. my first question is, does anyone know what the torque spec on ARP main studs is? second question,i have a titan/cometic MHG which seems to be just metal(no coating), should i use copper spray or something or just put it on there bare? i also need the torque spec for ARP rod bolts if anyone has them. i gave all my hardware and instructions to the engine builder but, since they had already done the work, i did not receive the paper with the torque specs when i picked up the motor. i do have the one that came with the head studs because they never installed them or the head. thanks in advance
