I was going to do the Singh grooves on the "Detailed Head Rebuild", but never did. I think I will do this on blue.

So this morning, the head got removed and placed on the bench. I always remove the head with the intake attached since it's so much easier that way..............



Here is why there was no compression on #3 cylinder...........



So I removed the intake and set it aside.............



I then removed the cam, lifters, and valves keeping it all in order.............



Now on to the block. Notice the head gasket holes on the upper left and right sides........



Someone has been in here before. Anyway, it's time to perform the block prep and testing. I cleaned the block surface with a mild roloc disc and blew out the head bolt holes........





Then to check the bottom end, I used cleaning solvent used in shop parts wash tanks and poured it into the cylinders to see if the solvent runs through the cylinders............



No leakdown there, so I can trust the bottom end since there was no smoke or noises. Using a brush, I cleaned the top of the pistons with a brush using the solvent already in there........



Next steps will be doing the valve job and cleaning the lifters.
