Valve stem seals ?
Hey guys, I've been reading these for a while and finally signed up. I bought an 83 CJ7 about a year ago and have been replacing things since. So far the books I bought have been great, but I ran out of ideas on this one. I am trying to change the valve stem seals on my 258. I compress the spring to remove the retainers but I cant get the spring to move down the valve stem so that I can get the retainers out. I tried several things to prop the valve up so I could tap down on the compressed spring. Is there a trick to this? I have done this on a few cars and it was easy. Thanks for any ideas - Ill try them all.
Finally got a CJ - IFS never again!
