Ha, Robert Scores. I forgot about pressurizing the cylinder to kee the valve from falling into the cylinder

Reinstall the spring and retainer along with the locking keys, release the spring tension and move on to the next one. I like to give the valve stem a rap with a rubber mallet just hard enough to unseat the valve and snap shut.

If you go with U-seals, they need to fit in the spring ID. This includes the damper that most times comes installed in a single valve spring.

So, size the seal to the valve stem diameter and the valve spring ID.. Since the seal needs to fit between the valve guide and the spring retainer at full lift, make sure you have room for the top of the seal. I doubt it will be an issue but good to check.

I see IHPA has a set in the store. https://www.ihpartsamerica.com/store/COMP-504-16.html

I am finally going to install these umbrella seals. Isit worth the trouble to try replace the stock seals?

Are you referring to the oring that goes on the valve stem? Yes, I would renew them as well.

I see several "valve seal tools", do I need such a thing?

Your carb guy is awesome. Just be prepared to talk when you go there, because he's a yapper. I've been going to him for years, even just to pick his brain. Good dude.

Paul is the real deal. I haven't been by there in a while. He said that he had his GTO and his camper sold and with what he said about his kids I get the feeling he is/was winding down there.

I could sit and talk with him as long as he wants, I have in fact.

Yes, I got that feeling during Christmas. He hosted a pizza party/Toy drive with the CHP (his daughter is an officer). It was apparent to all of us that he was looking to wind it up and watch the grand kids grow up. Soon, there won't be anyone who even knows what a carburetor is. Let alone anyone who can tickle them like he can....
