Grandma's Bike

Colby's shovelhead (purchased new by his grandmother) is coming along good.  The short block is completed.  It runs standard compression with a H-Grind "Victory Cam" and hydraulic lifters.
Saturday, McFarland machined off +.005 from each gasket surface for a solid gasket seal.  I checked the guide / stem clearance with precision check pins and they are all within spec.  I suspect these heads were gone through not that long ago.  The seats were checked, and after thoroughly lapping in the valves, they're ready for assembly (after a good cleaning).
