Well thatís what I get for not taking pictures. Been rebuilding this for 3 months...it was bound to happen. I figure Iíll put in one of the old sensors to plug it. Thanks

Got some valves out. How do I check the valve guides or do I need the tool in the Bentley? Brought it to my motorcycle engine buddy and he thought it was good. What to check?
