Folks, it's not that tough, honestly. I too was dreading it, but after watching videos upon videos, I gained some confidence. Now, trust me, YOU CAN DO IT! All it takes is patience and being meticulous. It's not the kind of project you do while enjoying some beers, sorry, unless you've done it gazillion times before . Wow, removing the engine just to tackle valve stem seals, would be the toughest project ever for the average DIY'er! It's better to remove the cams instead, that would make it match easier, even if you'd have to deal with engine timing and correctly installing the cams back - a gazillion times better than removing the engine! .
