Hi,

I have got the head off my RB26DETT and want to know if it is worth changing valve stem oil seals while i'm at this stage!

I know the obvious answer is yes but at the time I removed the head there was no smoke from the exhaust and it never lost any oil, so do I poke and prod something that works fine (If it aint broke dont fix it! etc... etc... )?

Thanks All. :thumbsup:

You can change the seals with the head on.

You use a valve spring compresser that bolts to the head where the rocker cover holes are.
