Got head today..

... had two sparkplug holes threads fixed. But before I put the engine back together isnt it a good idea to remove the carbon deposits from the "roof and floor" of combustion chamber? How to do this easilly, any good solvent for this?

According to our Haynes Manual..... A wire brush should take off the worst of it, and then you can use emery cloth, or something similar to remove the rest of it....

I'm amazed the guy did two without checking the rest.

Partially my fault, I came there acting like I did my homework.
I think something went very bad last time the plugs were changed. Too much torque maybe, I always feel like not doing it it properly with my hands stuck in the small space trying to turn the tool. I can turn it maybe 10 degree's at a time, hard to judge when I've done the correct number of turns when compressing the plug..

Re: Got head today..

How many miles are on it? If it has quite a few, now would be a good time to put some new springs in it and lap valves.

Re: Got head today..

i put mine in the bead blaster here at work. the stuff we use is really really fine so its hard to damage the combustion chamber but works great for getting all the carbon off.

How much is 'quite a few', mine has around 25000 miles or 40000km. I was just thinking checking/setting valve clearances.. But I'd rather not split the engine again for at least two more seasons so maybe something to consider?

Nothing like that in my garage. How about a drill and polishing pads of some sort?
