Repalcing Valves


1972-2002

Recommended Posts

looked and my valves and they are black on top and some of the exhaust valves seem to have oil dripping down from the top. most all intake and exhaust are very black on top. 

 

Question is shouid i replace them. should i have an engine shop look and them and give me their thoughts? advice welcome. if i replace valves what else should i do for good measure?

 

anyone use stainless steel valves from Ireland Engineering? should i use stock valves?

 

thanks as usual for your great help

What you're more concerned about is the sealing face, the valve seat surface, and the condition of the guides.

 

Usually, the valves are OK (or at least, easily reground) but the guides are worn.

 

Find a machine shop you can trust, and hand it to them.
