16K Valve check
I'll be going on a long vacation in a month or so. I decided to do my valve check a little early at 15k. It took about 6 hours but suspect I could cut that in half the next time. By the way, the plugs were an odd size (for me anyway). I have a lot of sparkplug sockets but no 18mm. I included some pics of the plugs. They look good, no reason to replace every 16k in my opinion. The valves were good, they were at 0 or very close. I had a .005 that would not slide between them. You need a "bent" feeler gauge for the front cylinder as I had a hard time manipulating the feeler gauge on the front valves.
