Valve bucket/ risers mixed up
Posted February 14, 2007 - 09:20 AM
my question to the incredibly wise masses here (not the bone heads like me), is there a method to measure and reinstall in the correct valve location?
By the way I did a search with no luck

If, say, all of your intakes are blue, they should all be the same size. Should be.
I am going through a similar thing.
What I would suggest is to see if you can first match up the colors as best as possible.
Have a good strong magnet handy.
Then put a little oil on the bucket perimeter, where it goes down into the head.
Try to push the bucket down into its hole with very little force. If it will go, it should be obvious. If the bucket is too small, it will move around some in that hole.
If it is the correct size, it will move up and down easily without any side to side movement. (I hope you can see this as it is inside my head.) You can now pull the bucket out with the magnet (hopefully) and remember where it goes. Move to the next and repeat.
Anyone else have any tips ?
