I have reached my technical limit with cleaning my 292 engine. I have pulled the intake manifold, alt, and water pump (cleaned and painted) I have the shop manual but I am still hesitant to pull the cylinder heads of the engine for fear of not putting it back together correctly. I am looking for someone to show me how to do one. I am not looking for anyone to do it for me. I WANT to learn.
If anyone has a spare day or two I will pay for gas and feed you. I live up in Jefferson County by Fort Drum. I may even be able to get you to sit in a UH-60 BLACKHAWK, AH-64 Apache, and OH-5 Kiowa.
Can you come and get me in Virginia??
Why do you want to take the heads off? Just cleaning or valves or? The rocker arm shafts on those engines had a tendency to sludge up. The soft plugs on the shaft ends can be knocked out for cleaning, might as well do the rocker arms too but, keep them in order.
