This journal of your journey is keeping me entertained in math class, but surely not as much as the outcome will entertain YOU...

Question: Why?

Also, why when working on the block on the stand, did you have it on its side?

looking good for the tear down but one little piece of advice even though its to late now but you donot need a spring compesor to take off valve springs. At Honda we just use a 14mm deep socket and a hammer. Put a rag under the head balled up under the cylinder you are working on and then just center the socket over the retainers and hit it with a hammer the retainers will pop out and the spring will come off.

to answer your question the stand allows me to position the motor however I like and the block was on the side while I was removing some tubing and sensors.
