    Got a new one for all you Hot heads!

    Was given some info on my valve guides today as to how and get more oil to the guide. take the spring off the seal. all it will do is smoke at the start. Anyone every heard of this?

    Heard of this on a tractor pull motor.

    hmmm, that`s tricky, you say remove the tension spring on the perfect circle type valve stem seals, hmmmm

    the regular umbrella type valve seals don`t have the same tension/grip on the valve stems, and they don`t smoke at idle...

    what you trying to do?...PR...

    He is saying that you can get more oil to the valve stem by doing this. Only think is I guess its called a leaky valve guide but only smokes on start up. Makes sense to me.

    remove the spring only on the exhaust valve seals and it won't smoke at all. what makes you feel that the guides need more oil? Bronze guides that are in these engines require very little oil in comparison to iron guides in other types of engines.

    This sounds like a lot of trouble with no gains.
