Well I yanked the rocker arms off and 3 valves on the right side facing windshield won't close completely, thus I still get piston/valve contact with cam and crank both at TDC and rocker arms off. I just had new guides and seals replaced a week ago. Are these valves "sticking" because the guides are new or did I more likely bend them? As I understand it, the rocker arm should always be in contact with the cam lobe.

If I have to pull the head again to have valves replaced I'm gonna cry.

What a nightmare

Thanks for any insight available...
