What do you guys do to get the hex set screws out of the heads? I assume they are for the oil passages...and I want to get in there and clean everything out before sending them off for porting.
I use a long handle 3\8ths drive ratchet with a allen bit on it. If you hold heavy constant pressure on them they will usually come loose, if they don't then you need to heat them with a torch.

The constant heavy pressure is important and some times it takes over a minute and then it will just randomly break free.
