Re: Valve seal replacement; use nylon ro

Hi !

I have once used  nylon cord   (long enough very clean rope) with my
 friend  when we routine changed new  valve springs to mercury V8
 hi perf racing  boat engines.

The rope  was  put into the cylinder through
plug hole and  crank turned to set piston to top position
and then easily change valve  springs seals etc.

By the way pressure bleeds greasing oil away from cylinder walls !
