Valve stem oil seal

Postby Pupfocused » Mon Jan 29, 2018 6:31 pm

I am replacing the head gasket on my 86 trooper. It happens to have a non turbo block. I it went about 100k before the head gasket started leaking. I sent the head to a machine shop with some ITM valve stem oil seals. The machine shop called when they started assembling the head and stated that the seals were oversize. I took them a set of factory ones that I was saving for another project and they fit perfect. Maybe this will help someone.
