Injectors were already sent out for testing and cleaning last week so should be back with me soon.

As reported at the very beginning, some sort of coating was applied in the past around the entire engine.

It's baked over the years together with all sorts of gunk, oil, etc so not sure how far I can clean this but will try.

The ignitor module is also covered in same coating so doesn't look nice.

The marathon session of valve clearance adjustment.

Adjusted and checked in three rounds to minimise the deviation between each adjusters.
All the time spent here will be awarded later with the rythmical and nice eng music.
For NSX engine, once adjusted properly, best not to touch it until the next Eng Refresh.

New valve cover gaskets installed and degreased ready for liquid gasket application.

The final preparation of creating the oil free clean mating surface on the cyl head.

Once again, dealing with the liquid gasket so no time for taking photo and just the end result.

So much better now.
