    All right guys it's exactly what I thought one of the intake valves is stuck open. Anybody got any good ideas on how to get it unstuck without removing the head.

        The problem is it's not stickey it is stuck it's going to be quite hard to get sea foam to the valve when the cylinder keeps blowing back out the carb

        Have you tried to move it with your hands?

          Did everything I knew to do to get it unstuck nothing worked so I went ahead and took it apart and got it freed up. Does anyone know where to get the gaskets for a reasonable price. Local shop here in Pensacola Florida wants 190$ for valve cover gasket spacer gasket, and head gasket

            You can definitely reuse the metal valve cover gaskets. Spray them with three light coats drying in between of permatex copper gasket seal.

              Yeah the valve cover gasket looks pretty good, I will tell you if you ever pull the head spacer off of a r* be careful when you pull it the dowel pin doesn't fall into the oil jacket, right as I pulled it I saw it go right into the whole. It was an oh f*** moment for sure. Luckily I was able to fish it out with a magnet

                We had a member here that had that happen a few years ago. Yeah it will cause some stress for sure!

              Found all the parts I needed on eBay for less than 100$. Crazy how much these local shops mark up there prices.
