Im basically making this thread to get some pointers on my weekend project. Replacing the valve stem seals in my AWP. I have had osme oil burning issues on my motor after long periods of idle. I have a grand new 3076r and the hosuings (int +exh) are dry, DP and ic piping are also dry, and it ONLY smokes after sitting at a light of when I come to a stop after long crusing times. Compression is at ~180psi cold, hot, wet and dry. Motor was honed an re ringed about 5k ago. Catch can is dry and pcv has been blowing dry air since the warmer months. This leads me to believe oil is getting into the cylinders from the top. Oil consumption is not terrible, but the smoke is oil smoke. it smokes the most after first start up when i back out my driveway.
So, I am planning on doing this with the head on, I will be using shop air and a valve to keep pressure in the cylinder to prevent valves from dropping, and i know to put each cylinder at TDC when doing this. I also know to buy 20 seals. But what else do I need to know before taking this one on? I also have access to the valve spring tool.
Its my first time going into a head, I have only replaced HG's and swapped heads before, but nothing internal. Any tips/tricks some of the gurus have?
