    Tone how comes you didn't put the money you saved on doing this job yourself into a set of spangly new HKS cams? Good werk fella.

So I can see how pofessional mechanics who are charging 50-60/hour can charge 600 for the job, then there's the price of the parts on-top.
    Personally I wouldn't charge anyone beyond 300 plus parts, at the end of the day it's just spannering and being methodical about how you work.
    I've just asked my usual garage for a quote for this so we'll see, but I vaguely remember Dude charging 400 for it (that could be wrong though).

    He'd probably do it a bit quicker though as he's done so many. I don't know what facilities Tony has so I don't know if that is a factor as well.

    To be honest the whole point of posting this was that you could do it yourselves! It's not a difficult job, and if you follow the steps as I've written them down it would be pretty hard to go wrong to be honest!

    Just get the correct tools for the job and then take your time and be methodical.

    Oh as for my facilities. I did the whole job with the car on my parents driveway. OK I do have a reasonably decent set of tools, but I didn't really use anything ,other than the special tools I mentioned at the start, that a hundred quid at halfrauds wouldn't get you. From what I remember I used:-

    10mm spanner
    14mm spanner
    17mm ring spanner
    Mole grips
    Adjustable spanner
    1/4 inch ractchet driver
    10mm deep socket (1/4inch drive)
    12mm deep socket (1/4 inch drive)
    1/2 inch ratchet driver
    22mm socket (1/2 inch drive)
    16mm spark plug socket (1/4 inch drive)
    6 inch extension (1/4 inch drive)
    2 inch extension (1/4 inch drive)
    Stanley knife blade (to clean the old sealant off the head)
    Torque wrench (1/4 inch drive - 20Nm to 100Nm IIRC)
    Axle stands
    2 tonne trolley jack
    Medium sized plastric mallet
    9 inch long screwdriver
    Scribe for getting the rubber remains from the valve stems
    Medium sized pliers.


    Can't think of much of anything else, but generally just things that the average home mechanic has. Nothing special!

    Best of luck!

    Is this right?
    I've got twelve of 90913-02088 "Seal, Valve Stem Oil" and twelve 90913-02123 "Seal, Valve Stem Oil"
    but the colours are the other way around. 02088 is grey and 02123 is bronze.

    Which are the intake seals and which are the exhaust ones?

    Yup my mistake,
    02088 is the exhaust seal and should be grey
    02123 is the inlet seal and should be bronze.

    Apologies!

    Can you not check on the EPC Jake? If no one replies I'll have a look when I get home if you can't.

    Jake, are the holes in the stem seals slightly different sizes? Only I got mine from ebay and can't tell which is which until I open up the head!
