Default Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

I would get one valve fit and then have all the others ground the same amount. Mike is talking about if he rebuilds the engine with new valve seats and valves from his vendor. No telling what you actually need but I sure wouldn't take that much off unless I knew for sure it was right. You can measure from a straight edge down to the top of the lifter and get really close.

Maybe I should call my machine shop guy back in the morning and tell him to go .100?
