Because it’s time to replace the valve seats.

The heads go on the grille. The seats go in the freezer.

Welcome to mke’s home-built, V12-powered Ferrari 308 project. When things don’t go as to plan, mke fixes them–often via something ingenious and totally not in the factory manual.

From the first page of the build thread:

…thank goodness I have a welder and not much sense :)

Great old school tech -- pistons in the oven, wristpins in the freezer.

I bought my buddy an aircooled  VW cylinder head size Toaster oven  to do what you are doing , 

also works great to preheat the heads before welding.....
