Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS

I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this 305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.

Valve seal Replacement
Leaking valve seals cause your engine to smoke when you first start it up, and then it usually runs the rest of the day with no smoke. Usually replacing the valve seals will fix the problem. Here's how to do it. Of course other engines may vary to some degree but the basics are the same.

Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle
[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10 minutes of idling the Exhaust will start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.





Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem. In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the valves in to make a better seal. Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in your service manual is in this video. I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video. It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports. Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself, never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average gearhead's garage.

HowTo - Change Valve Stem Seals
Thought I'd take a moment to post a how-to guide. Got the head off your engine for any reason? Head gasket kits usually come with a new set of valve stem seals. You can install them yourself with one simple tool. It's totally worth doing, old hardened seals will allow oil into the engine which will cause a blue smokey cloud at traffic lights or when restarting the engine. Easy fix, just follow my guide.

Fitting new valve guide seals without removing the cylinder head Suzuki Vitara
This is how you can remove and replace valve guide seals with the head still on the engine. Normally you have to have the head off so you can fit the valve spring compressor on to the head of the valve. I had heard of this method but never tried or seen it done before. The only special tool is a piece of string. Watch the video and see the "Essex Red Neck" at work :-)
