Pita!

Just thought I would share this with everybody. Replacement of worn valve seals. Those little keeper tabs on the top of the valve stems are one serious PITA!!! Took me a couple hours just to replace two valve seals, yeah thats just one cylinder. Where's that little beat my head on the wall emoticon?

Just can't get enough relief on the valve to get the keepers in and out easily. Even tried to put some vac hose in the spark plug hole, and rolled the piston all the way up to hold it. To no avail. Oh well, live and learn!

X2, Major pain.
When I did my springs I used air, works better, but still a PITA
