I recently purchased a valve train upgrade kit from summit for my 350, it came with vitron valve seals.
The problem iam having is they seem to tight when I tried installing the first one, I dont want to ruin them by installing them incorrectly.
I looked them over and they are all the same, diameter, lenghth and all,
I also made sure the cylinder head didnt have any casting flash or dirt on them, the heads are stock chevy and when I ordered them I called the tech line first to make sure I didnt need Any alterations or machine work done.
HELP........
I thought about putting them in warm water first, any ideas ?:devil:

I'm guessing you're dealing with PC style seals? First, get a caliper and make sure you've got the correct seals (.500", .531", etc.)!!! If so, then there's a tool used to make it easier. It's pretty cheap and makes it a breeze.:yes:
