The intake and exhaust valves are ok based on inspection. I will lap the valves in to improve the contact of the valves to the valve seat. The tools required are a valve lapping tool and some valve lapping compound. See pics and captions below for details.

Just put some valve lapping compound on the valve and spin the valve on the seat using the tool. Be sure to check your progress frequently.

Some before and after pics.



Once the valves are lapped in it is time to reassemble the valves in the cylinder head. See pictures below of the process.

Before I get started I will clean the gasket surfaces with a Scotch brite pad on an angled die grinder

Nice and clean.

Use assembly lube on the valve stems before assembly.

Next assemble valve springs and seats and then compress them using a valve spring compressor.

Once the valve spring is compressed the keepers can be installed.

Release the compressor and the installation is complete.
