Define "valve job" please.

I'm replacing the springs but the valves are still good and only 1 riding season on them and with zero leak down in the valves I didnt see a point for a full replacement.

I think Creeky is inferring that as long as it is apart might as well do em - especially if you changing valve springs, may as well do new valves and seals while you are there and or at least lap them and the seat. Makes everything 100%. Prior to reassembly.

I do have one quick question.

When I put it all back together, I got the cam sprocket figured out but how do you aling the sprocket with the cam properly to make it truly TDC?

Edit: Nevermind...just went and looked, kind of cant get it wrong I see.
