    Consensus on grinding valves

    I usually get by with lapping but I do cut them when needed, but I have to tools to do it so it's not a big deal for me to do. If you have to take them to someone I would agree it's probably cheaper and easier to just buy new ones. The tools are pretty expensive.

    Cleaning nut and bolts

    Like Kevin says, that kit works great for doing a few items but if you try to do every nut and bolt you will be putting in a lot of time. You need to get the rust off, clean the piece, then polish it to the shine you want and then clean it again, plate it (takes 5 to 10 minutes of plating time...

    Broken Case

    Not sure what causes them to break, but I can assume it is from not using a torque wrench when tightening the bolt down. I did a little TIG welding practice this weekend fixing this very section. I welded it from both sides. I think it would be strong enough to use again.

    Clutch Nut and Flywheel removal is it clockwise or counterclockwise

    The nut loosens counter clockwise. The clutch should just slide off, but most I have done need a little help. I use a two jaw puller, doesn't take much to get it loose. You can usually turn the puller by hand and it will come off.

    I am sure you meant well by this statement, but there is nothing wrong with asking the price. He could want some ridiculous price that even a man with money would walk away from?
