I had an intake spring break and just replaced the one. It wasn’t that hard to do in place. I would say the bottom springs would be easy by just removing the exhaust system. You’ll have to be the...

He’s talking about piston to valve clearance.

You don’t need a lot of clearance. .8mm is enough. You can try retarding the cam slightly. If you have to, you can get deeper pockets cut into the...
