CC Combustion Chamber needs Shaving

Hey, So if I shave my heads .020, then that would mean shaving the
intake manifold as well... I test fitted the heads without the .028
head gasket,and with the intake gasket to see if theres a problem,,
With the int. gasket it fits fine front,and sides, but the back has alot
of gap even with rear gasket (like .020 or so) I tried with no int.gasket,
and it looks like a perfect fit... Would .010 off the intake( just the sides)
make it fit right? I would think the machine shop would know, but I would
like to know before hand..
Please Reply,Thanks

I don't think that you would need to modify the intake at all with that little bit of milling. The intake will sit .020 higher on the intake runners it won't uncover the intake ports or water passages so you should be good. however, to be sure then you would need to take off .020 on the ends of the intake or the block.

BourgD build coming along

Hey, I haven't been on in a while. I run into problems. Not with the built
though. I got the motor in the S10 blazer and got it running ( runs
great!!!!) The bad part was when I was adding my setback spacers
on the rear axle the blazer rolled off its blocks and came down ontop
of me. luckly my wife was there or I'd be died and luckly my roller jake
was partly jaked up... My wife was able to rise the blazer off me with
the jake.. I went to the hospital and they only found 1 broken rib with
a severe bruse. I was very fortunate thats all that happen.. Anyway
it want be long now, I'll be finish and I'll send pictures and a video of
it.. Thanks again for all the help from everbody,BourgD

Wow! It's good that you are ok! That was a close call. That's why i'm a firm believer in jack stands, no matter how quick or how simple the job is, you just never know.

I fully agree with J, Life is too short as it is, something that takes 10 minutes of more work is worth it when it saves your life. Never compromise your safety just to save a few minutes. Just think, had it been far worse, and you had not been so fortunate, you couldn`t enjoy what you built.
One thing I learned a long time ago is, never compomise your safety, and never work alone or out of earshot of another.

CC combustion needs shaving(Just comenting)

Hey,It was very close,I do not have jakestands but I will shortly.
It came down on my chest taking my breath away and more,I could
not speak a word. My wife was right there when it happen,luckly,
the roller jack was underneath the axle where the bolt for the
shock sticks out for the shock. All she have to do was jackup and
I was free... You know I must have cruled under car and trucks
a million times, I have always used the emergency brakes and blocked
the wheels. This time I have to undue the rear axle to put the setback
spacers in and forgot to block wheels.I was gust so exsited it was
almost finish. I will sent a video and pictures in the next few weeks
how it came out.. Thanks again,BourgD

STANDS, WOOD, SOMETHING TO SAVE YOUR LIFE....

Any competent machine shop will automatically shave the intake face of the head as well so the intake manifold will fit right.
IMO If they don't routinely do it as a matter of proper procedure, find someplace else to take your heads.

I don't believe in ruining the intake manifold because some machine shop didn't do the heads properly.
