Jeffrey10x4 did. He recently sold his car though. There are a few threads in the performance section.

mmm...I've talked to him quite a bit. He MENTIONED that they might be useful, then somewhat retracted it, then put '93'* (with roller fulcrum) on it. Did I miss something?

He'* got a custom regrind cam in there, so it might be setup for the 1.6 stockers. I know he needed a specific length pushrod (8" i believe).

Yeah he probably would, as far as I know he never did. It'd be neat if someone tried it though..
Heya if you know something I don't spill the beans! Where can we get these custom roller rockers for the same price?

I will do all the work myself with the help from you guys and a haynes manual. How hard would it be to just replace the valve stem seals. What all is involved in that job?

If I end up replacing the head or heads, I might as well replace the upper and lower intakes.

Default valve seals

Just wondered how the job went. I have a 94 with bad seals also and was considering doing the compressed air in the cylinders trick. Then I'm thinking about pulling the heads, doing the machine work with mild porting and maybe some higher ratio rocker arms.
