Dave and Harry (car mechanics) on the Moto Guzzi California 2 rebuild

Dave is in the picture lapping the valves into the head. By applying some super glue to the rubber and attaching to the valve. With a little valve cutting paste and using a zig zag motion the valves are grinding in. They do not need much work as they have been cut at the machinery shop. Harry did help with one of the valves so should get a mention. Although he was quick to get out of the way of the camera.

The engine sump is back on. A thin film of grease was applied to each side of the two gaskets and tighten up the oil filter in the sump. The valve springs were put back on after the valves grinded in. The heads are due to go on soon.
