Re: Buying New Heads, Need Some Advice!!!!
I know most people do not have a camshaft degree wheel. So having said that, here is what I'd do with your truck if it was in my driveway. I'd use my degree wheel and dial indicator and measure the camshaft (lift & duration).[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I've been know to just change the valve springs on an engine, and solve the valve train problem. I've also been know to replace the valve stem seals at the same time I replace the valve springs to a positive type valve stem seal with teflon inserts. Heck,[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I might even do a leak down test on the old heads before I decided to remove and replace the old heads.
Buying new/rebuilt heads is still an option, and an expensive one at that. I'm sorta a fan for using World Products S/R cast iron heads on a pickup engine. I'm a super huge fan for using roller tip rocker arms.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
