Thanks for the info. When I had my heads off I didn't check the springs, but would have if I had known how.

RDahler, couple questions as I look back to the work you did on your heads. How/what did you look for when you inspected your valves/springs. Specifically, how did you determine that some of the...

That is what I was thinking when I read your last post. What kind shape do you think your current heads are in? How many hours on them?

If you have a roller setup, just by logic, I would think...

Probably depends where you go. A place up here quoted me about 2/3rds that price to swap out and install a remanufactured long block. That didn't include any diagnosing of the current problems...

You should be able to do that on the lift. Yes, remove the bolts, clean up, and put it back together. Lining it back up shouldn't be that bad - just need to get the bolts through.

I would loosen...

In a Prostar you can swap the camshaft and/or swap the heads without pulling the engine. I'm not sure if you'd have stuff in the way to do that on an x10? In my Prostar I think I'd need to pull the...

That's interesting. I found the lack of transparency on Camshafts very frustrating. When I obtained my short block, it would have come with a new camshaft if I was using if for an automotive...
