BBC 454 Valve seal question
i have read on some other websites about these guys who arent running any valve stem seals on the exhaust valves only the intake. and some guys not even running valve seals at all...
my question is... is this really ok to do. im putting my motor back together and im having some issues with springs hitting the seals and i know what seals i need but i really dont wanna spend the extra money right now to get the guides cut and re-installed i just want to drive the truck occasionally not everyday and really want to get it running i know im not doing it right but the heads do have new guides.. let me know if any of you guys have done it and is it ok... i know that it will smoke on start ups.
