Here's a question I think I already know the answer to. If I buy some new bare heads and want to use some used valves I already have in the new heads, do I have to get a valve job done?

Thanks........

Usually a "valve job" at the machineshop is both seats and valves. But since your new heads have the seats already done, you're looking at 1/2 a valve job.

I wouldn't use old valves on new seats without regrinding the valves.
