gotta pull the heads question

Valve seals got beat to hell

 

Gotta cut down the valve guides. One head the exhaust guides was .125 taller than the other head ( factory guides )

 

Seals was hitting the bottom of the retainer

Dammit ! You have had some shitty luck ! Guess anyone can make a mistake but that doesn't seem like something a reputable engine builder would miss. Was this problem apparent on the first rebuild ? Possibly the oil consumption issue all along ?

lol I feel like Linus and the cloud following me

 

He check the length of the guide on last rebuild and he said he check one head and all seamed fine so he never checked the other. I can see where that would be something people would do. Either way it sucks. The last go around with oil was the oil control ring jumped out and scored the cylinder
