i didnt check on mine..worked fine..taken it over 6000rpms a couple times

definiely brings compression up though..I got real bad pinging on mine when I first started it up, but it just took some carb adjusting to rid of it

Checking is just insurance all motors are not the same I would just hate to see him just bolt them on and next thing you know there goes some bent valves

oh i agree..not all engines are the same..if its easy for you to check p/v then go for it...I didnt have the right tools to check it on mine so I just took the risk...

I think youre the only person I know of who had a p/v problem with it. Do you have any reason to believe your heads could have been milled? just curious
