Default Where to get these tools?

So I'm in the process of tearing down the engine on a G11. It's got to the point to where I'm going to need to add some inventory to the tool box, but am unsure where to acquire these tools at. Here's my list.

Valve Spring Tool - I need to compress it so I can put it back together.

Clutch/Shieve Puller - Trying to get to the bottom end of the motor to see what kind of shape it is in.

Hone - So I can redo the exhaust and intake ports on the Cylinder Head. There is a small amount of surface rust on one side and the other is just caked with soot.

Some form of Engine Cleaner (Inside and Out) - the jug, cylinder head, rear end all of it has sat in the weather for 2+ years and looks awful. Would like to clean it up and paint, or at least get it looking better than it does currently. Any solvents, grinding wheels...any thing.

Also anything else yall can think of that may come in handy in the future. I'm basically tearing the whole cart down and rebuilding it. Take a gander in my photo gallery if you would like to get a feel for what I'm working with. Thanks.

As for cleaning, I would take it to an engine or tranny shop and have it hot tanked.
I'm not sure what motor you have, but most auto parts stores have valve spring tools, and I don't know what kind of puller you are refering to, but I'm sure someone else will respond here pretty soon.

Southern, The clutch puller can be bought from our sponsors. The valve spring tool can be rented at an auto store if there is one way out there in Czechahoe. They are in harbor freight also. For cleaning, make a bubbler and soak in kerosene with the air bubbling around the parts(out side) the fumes will kill you. A die grinder or flapper wheel with your air cut tool will clean the ports.

What grit should the flapper wheel be DOOM?

Mix them up coarse to start and medium finish in the intake, fine in the exhaust. The medium in the intake will cause a liquid lamular film to form, that will flow faster than a highly pollished surface.

Default Re: Where to get these tools?

I personally use a Craftsman "Stone style" hone, do other's prefer the "Ball style" deglazer? My good fortune is I have ring sets that I can put in and mic, to see if it is in tolorence's. I don't use a valve tool, I just stick a rag in the compression chamber, use a 17mm wrench to push down the spring and a small screw driver to pull out the keeper/keeper's. I use a several sized wire wheels to get the carbon out, but one day maybe a die grinder to port and polish. I use course and fine valve lapping paste (if the valves are not damaged) and use my cordless drill to "lap/seat" the valves. You will need a puller to get the fixed sheave off (might check "tool loan sticky" to see if you can borrow one, or as I do at the shop, buy the parts from me and I'll take the sheave off for you, n/c).

Thanks for the replys. Will this hone work? http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=97163

Smallblock - what is valve lapping paste and what does it mean to lap/seat the valves? I actually got the valves off the springs with a lot of thumb pushing and determination. I just want to make it easier on myself when I reinstall them.

That hone is to small. Get one that will do cylinders, not brakes. Please post some pix's of the valve (closer up) where they would "mate/seat" on the cylinder. The pix's look like there realy bad and need repalcing.

How about this one? http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=97164

I cant get my camera to get a good close up picture. I think I'll just order new valves, I think they both can be had for around $30.

So what is valve lapping paste and how do you lap/seat them?
