    RIVA Valvetrain Install

    Thanks to brendon for loaning me the compression tool which i will be sending out tomorrow , i was able to do the upgrade in 2 hrs....very easy to do i am not sure how anyone could screw it up. the only tricky part was getting the keepers back in place....i am ready for the high RMPS now....

    air was leaking out of the hose that connects to the valve cover but i figured that was no big deal....air compressor kept up just fine...i ran about 85psi in each cylinder and when i switch from cyl to cyl the motor turned over, normal i assume.

    can't wait to get my ECU and IC....

    the magnet on the stick is deff required so you do not drop the keepers, i used marine grease on them to keep them in place when putting them back in, i used angled vise grips to put them in place then rotated them with my fingers in place...

    the only tricky part was getting them to unseat so i could take the keepers out....sometimes the valve would just go down and air would come out the exhaust.
