Using our new tool, we were successfully able to remove the valve springs, keepers, and valves. Although we’ve yet to measure anything, not a single valve had any issue with the seat or clearance. Only one valve has a slight mushroom on top of the head so we need to lightly grind it down so that we can remove it.
Even though these are 882’s with 76CC, we’re still going to reuse them in this rebuild 🙂 Rather than take them to a machine shop for tanking, we opted to clean them ourself by soaking them in purple power for a week. They came out great, in our final wash before assembly, we will ensure rust and any residue is removed.
