are within the ranges specified above.
Put a little coarse grinding compound on the face of the

Spin the valve against the seat until the grinding com-
pound produces a smooth, matched surface on both the
seat and the valve.
Repeat the process with a fine grinding compound.

When the engine is assembled, be sure to adjust the valve
clearance (see Valve Clearance Adjustment).
