I guess the bottom line is all your flow testing and time spent will be wasted if you don't get the seats concentric. Even with the correct tools its easy to screw them up. Just like you can buy all the fancy aftermarket engine parts but if the clearances and proper fitting of parts isn't done the engine could end up making less power and be less reliable. Not trying to be an ***, but just trying to give you the facts.

I understand. I could just buy some $15 seats and try again a few times and then just buy a whole new engine and still be hundreds of $$$ in the positive over buying a high dollar kit that I may never use again. I think it's worth a try. I will put some CRC on the entire pilot as well as on the seat to help minimize wiggle as it lubricates and see if that helps enough.

You're welcome. Experience and knowledge is the way to go! Do it, its only a piece of metal that can easily be replaced. Just be safe while doing it. :cheers2:


Precisely. :thumbsup: :cheers2:
