I rebuilt the whole engine including the heads. I replaced the valve guides and reamed them. I was going to grind the seats myself at the local JC, but the stones they had were all too small. I would have had to grind all of there stones down in size and that would have pissed off all the V-8 guys. Anyway I had the seats ground (3 angle) for 5 bucks a head. I set up the installed valve spring height.

You can do it...
