Honing Head Flat

Post by SAILOR » Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:31 pm

I contacted a local bike shop that works on lots of goldwings. They told me very few goldwings needs heads resurfaced. They say all you need to do is use a whetstone. Has anyone used a whetstone to hone their cylinder heads? If so what kind of whetstone did you use and where can I get one.

If Your reffering to a warped cylinder head this can only be done with a surface grinder at a machine shop service. If Your talking about slight inperfections such as a gouge mark this probally could be done with a whetstone, Available at most sporting goods stores there also used for sharpening knives. The cylinder head needs to be checked on a Joe block also known as a perfect surface block to check for inperfections, Or a staight edge checking at a perpendicure angle to the cyl. head.
