Re: Timing Issue (Suggestions??)
Do it all the time. Place head on barrel with dowels in place so that you can scribe the head with the location of the bores. Remove head from barrels. Attempt to put piston crowns into head using scribe marks as a guide. Get a flared/flame carbide burr in a dremel and remove metal from head until the piston fits into the head completely with the flat sections of the piston touching the head gasket surface. Tidy the rough head finish with a sander of your choice. DO NOT TOUCH THE HEAD GASKET SURFACE WITH THE CARBIDE . . . I use an old head gasket while grinding to protect the head. Bearing blue will make the job easier as you can see what is touching.
