Hey Civil,

IF you already have the ACCT Installed, do NOT remove it again. I has a spring and ratchet design that WILL take up the excess slack when it encounters it. You say you have the cam...

Skids,

To replace the valve seals, you have to get the lifters off. To do that, you have to remove the cams. With both cams out, and all of the spark plugs out, there' s no compression to fight,...

It can be difficult to do with the head still on. You have to remove the valve springs/keepers to be able to get to the seals. Then there's nothing to hold the valves in/up in the head. Folks posted...
