Pictures of the Process

CC Supplies:  60cc Syringe, White lithium grease, Intake & Exhaust valves, Modified old valve guide seals, soft springs (Lowes C-704), and a plastic tub.  Also pictured but difficult to see is a small sheet of plexiglass with a small hole in the middle.
Valves are coated with grease to seal in water
Valves are pressed into place
Valves are held in place with mild pressure from a modified set of old valve guide seals and some small springs from Lowes.
Grease is applied around the combustion chamber
A sheet of plexiglass is pressed over the combustion chamber
Water is injected into the chamber
CCing an exhaust port
CCing a head is literally child's play.  Here we see Maggie working on the second head while Ed contemplates the virtues of boost on the 3.0.


Never far from the action, here's EJ grinning for the camera.  Ed later discovered the nature of EJ's evil grin after EJ realized he could shoot Ed with water from 6' away.
