**UPDATE** I got the gasket set in and well I got these rubber gaskets for the roller rocker arms. I need help, like a tutorial guide so I can put them on myself and not lose any more $$$. Can anyone help me?

Ohh, the valve seals. I never made a write up on that. It'* easy to do. I use a channel locks, grab it, not real tight, wiggle and pull up. Put the new one on, use a little lube, push down, use a socket if needed to push straight.

Default Update

So, today my dad and I finished rebuilding the engine. We ordered new spark plug wires and spark plugs, but the engine won't start. The engine does turn. All the plugs are in the correct order on the ignition coil and the ones to the engine. I remember when removing the ignition coil bracket there were these three wires for grounded to the assembly. Do those have anything to do with my starting problem?
