Riva valve train upgrade
Just got done installing the Riva valve train upgrade. With some general wrenching abilities and the Riva tool (you can get all from GH) it's not a bad job. Just have to be patient and follow all directions. I do have a tip from my old small block chevy/ford rebuilding days. Give all the valves a good "peck" before you start. Helps break things loose and makes things go better.
Won't be able to start things up and test for at least another month.

I did two skis this week. I remembered the the same trick after hearing air escaping through the exhaust when wrenching the third valve. Out came a 3/4" socket and ball peen for a quick tap on each retainer... no more scary air discharge through opening valves
