how do you remove valves on the 1.6 dohc non vtec engine?
how do you get off the valve seals?
carefully pull them straight off with a pair of plyers.They should not be reused.
the best way to remove the valves is by using a valve spring compressor to compress the springs, no whacking necessary.
head off, only way. for valve springs you can get away with compressioning the piston chambers but it's much easier with teh head off, plus good time to change the head gasket and get the ports cleaned up.
