I'm rebuilding a set of donated heads for my 09 Legacy. I simply bought a core set to save down time. Figured I can simply swap them in rather than pull, wait, re-install...I removed the rockers prior to sending them to the shop for the valve job/seals and 4 new exhaust guides(4 of them dropped on one head).
They should be done Mon or Tues, then I will re-assemble myself.
All of the shafts/rockers show virtually no wear whatsoever so whoever had this engine really kept it clean.
My question is that, in the factory manual it states that I should have used a special tool to retain a spring. Needless to say...I didn't. Anyone have any tips for the re-install?
I know it's a pretty specific area...and probably not too common, but there it is.
Thanks in advance...
