Revisiting one of the most information packed episodes from our first Expo, Joe Castello is joined by the AERA’s Chuck Lynch to dive into everything you need to know about seat and guide machining.

His talk covers the important, but frequently overlooked, subject of guides, alloys, and considerations that impact accurate seating.

Chuck delivers the 411 on everything you need to know from inference angles to machine maintenance and vacuum testing. He also discusses differentiating between machine and people-introduced errors in seat and guide machining, makes tooling suggestions, and offers some helpful insights (pro tip: windshield wiper fluid).

The episode closes with a live Q&A session with the viewing audience and the wealth of information available to engine builders via the AERA’s website.
