How difficult/what is involved in replacing the valve stem seals on a 3sg?

With the head off or on? It was a pain for me to do it with the head off, I imagine even more difficult with it on. You need a spring compressor in order the compress the springs to get the little clip thingys off, then the spring will come out. Then you can pull the seal off. Usually you want to use some type of valve cleaner stuff, usually sandy type of liquid substance.

Caution as the springs like to shoot off into the corner if you don't do it right.

Ah I'll probably just see what this machine shop that is goin to clean my block/head would charge to do the seals as well.
