NEVER USE HEADGASKET REPAIR IN A BOTTLE ....IT'LL DO MORE BAD THAN GOOD...
A quick note about head warpage....depending on the cause of your head
gasket failure, you may need to have the head and/or block resurfaced at a
machine shop. Having this done is not always necessary but may be required
if one or both of your head gasket mating surfaces is out of the
manufactured specified range for head and block warpage. Accurately
measuring this using a precision straight edge and the feeler gauges as
shown in this video is a vital step and should not be overlooked.

How to repair a headlight with moisture/water in it!
This is how I fixed a leak in a headlight. Just remove the light and put a
bead of silicone around the seem between the lens and rear housing.
Remember to remove the moisture, water, condensation before you seal it.
It seems most people think water gets into a headlight from rainfall and
water dripping into the light some how... but I don't think this is the
case. I believe when you turn your headlight on the temperature inside the
light rises drastically and once you turn them of,f a suction is created
and if the outside moisture is high then the moisture gets drawn into the
light and later condensates. I might be wrong..... What are your thoughts?

How To Remove and Replace Valves in a Cylinder Head -EricTheCarGuy
If you need to remove a valve from a cylinder head either to replace the
valve or replace the valve seals, this video will help you do that. You can
also do this process while the cylinder head is still fastened to the
engine block with some tools. To do that, put the piston at TDC compression
stroke and make sure both valves are closed. You can then run compressed
air into the cylinder to hold the valves in place as you compress the valve
springs. I often use my compression tester hose to do this. You need to
remove the schrader valve first before you attempt this, if not, air will
not flow into the cylinder. You can also use a piece of rope or equivalent
to keep the valves from dropping into the cylinder while you work. This
method works well if you're just replacing the valve seals. You won't be
able to use the large spring compressor however. You'll have to use the
Lisle or some other type of compressor do manage that task. Here's some
useful links for you.
Large Spring Compressor:
Lisle Spring Compressor Tool:
I had a heck of a time trying to find the Honda special tool and was not
able to provide a link for you. Sorry about that. The Lisle tool will work
just fine, OR I've seen some home made versions of that type of extension
that looked like they'd work pretty well.
