I agree, the valves, springs, keepers, and guide seals are still installed, and that's on a glance.

rosecitywanderer, What does a crack tech expect to get paid these days?

Flat rate or hourly? Better than a grand a week take home?

The valves are still in the heads. The intake assembly is full assembled. There are components installed on the block.

No biggie, but that does make for quite a few more parts.
