    It's working on the new heads that I'm soaking. Acetone is much more extreme, with the swelling and shrinking. Just shrinking is kinda boring, but it's probably way better of a method. You don't get to see how small the head is going to be with acetone. You soak and hope. With naphtha, what you see is what you get. Like the size, take it out and your good.
