Re: valve replacement

1. Tools:[*] Hand tools to remove head[*] Lapadary compound[*] Electric Drill.[*] Valve Spring Compressor tool
2. Remove the head,
3. Remove the Valve Spring off the vavle,
4. Remove the Valve,
5. Use the Drill and lapping compound to seat the new vavle,
6. Re-install.
7. It's not hard,
8. It is time consuming.
9. Me, I'd take off the head...
10. And have a machinest do it...
11. And check out the head at the same time.

Re: valve replacement

I got my head completely rebuilt (new seals, pressure tested, etc) for $170. I can't imagine *1* new valve would cost you all that much either. I say send it out and save yourself the trouble. As Larry said, it's not hard at all, just a PITA and a serious time eater.
