I recently posted a photo album of the engine rebuild process for my 1979 6.9. However, about six months prior to starting the rebuild we did the cylinder heads, thinking that was all the engine needed at the time. Here is the album for the cylinder head rebuild:

Thank you for sharing this pictorial record of the rebuild with us. I need to say that the quality of workmanship leaves nothing to be desired and you can be justifiably proud of your efforts.

I would like to feature your thread on my website, namely topklasse.net.au, but need your permission to do so. I did have a really good pictorial record of valve grind and de-coke on two of my 6.9s, but it is the wretched Photobucket provider that has absolutely destroyed the integrity of my threads on my website. Again, thank you for sharing. Regards Styria
