For those that are not familiar with the topic read this link first: Gent bent! part 1 So I just finshed pulling the head and it does in fact look like I bent the valves on the exhaust side only and on the number 2, 3 & 4 cylinder. I looked inside the exhaust ports and could not visibly see the valve guides cracked or shattered. However I did notice that the guides seem to be leaking some oil on both some cylinders intake and exhaust sides. Cylinders 1 and 2 right to left. Note that their is no shinny surface on the valves of cylinder 1 as on cylinder 2 leading me to believe cylinder 1's valves were not damaged. Cylinders 3 & 4 right to left again. Note both cylinder's exhaust valves again have the shinny surface. So then the questions are: Am I correct in assuming that these valves are bent? If so is it better to trash the head and start over? Or do I chance it with a machine shop in replacing the valve guides as I was going to do the porting and valve assembly myself?
