Re: rebuilding BB 781s, 11/32 valves worth it?
Yes, but not in budget currently. I have the 781s and a good 454 block sitting on garage floor just screaming at me to do something with them.
Guides will have to be done. Valve seats obviously will need to be done. cc'd them and they did come to 119. I did some backyard porting and cc cleaning up and I figured with the bigger and maybe lighter valves they'll perform a bit better than stock. If so, I'll figure that a win for me.
