If your valves are in spec do you have to pull them off the head to get to the piston?

no you shouldn't have to but it might be a good idea to have them checked out.

what do u mean pull the valves to get to the top end? you have to take the complete head off before you can get to the piston. you dont need to take the valves out of the head is they are good.

Thats what I meant. They are good I just wondered if I needed to take them out of the head to get the head off. I guess not though. That's sweet it will really cut down on the time it takes to change the piston. More like a 2-stroke.
