Got my heads back... not sure if I am going to install them

Post by TT_05_Stang on Fri Mar 04, 2011 12:52 pm

So there was no coil bind on the springs, and nothing was found to be th cause of the issue.

I talk to Justin at JPC and he said its common that the triple keepers break. Mark at MMR says they have run 2000hp without issues through the tripple keeper valves. Justin says I need 1600 in new valves and titanium retainers... I am at a loss because these pics sure do look like Justin is right...

its either I throw it back together and hope for the best, which would have me on the road in a week, or..... save up the 1600 and it would be a couple months...

So what's the worst that could happen if you throw it back together now for the time being? Then just save up?

1600 bucks to fix your heads is alot cheaper than a whole new engine.

I like the sounds of getting Will on the road sooner rather than later even if he has reduced HP as long as it is reliable power.
