I certainly don't need any extra expense (new valves) if not absolutely necessary. Thanks for your input.
I was looking for that option but got no input on going that route. Too late now, new valves (intake & exhaust) are on the way. $240 later! My NEXT set of vortecs will be MUCH easier!(if I ever use 'em again!) No biggie, I'm opening up spring pockets anyway even though machinist I used said they were good to go. MY opinion differed.
