i hope you all you guys that have given me ideas dont take this the wrong way, but I do see eye to eye with Gassman... I'd much rather fix the simple obvious things like the baffle and oil before I rip the heads off.....

How hard is it though for a somewhat mechanically inclined like myself to replace the valve seals? I've never personally tore into a motor before.... The things that i've done this far are all new to me.

I will however continue the compression check on the remaining 6 cylinders to see what the entire motor is running....
