yep thats all it needed and its a very commmon issue, the seals dont last forever with all the heat and oil cooking them and making them so brittle they fall apart.

most old untouched engines have this problem.

my 91 s-10 4.3L truck does it very badly big cloud of blue smoke at startup for a second at 196k miles but i dont care, its fine, just is the stem seals missing.

good luck
