I started tearing apart the Supra today to do the valve stem seals. Wish me luck because this is probably the first real thing that I have done with the "internals" of the motor by myself.....hopefully have it done with a week, two at the most!!

quick question for you guys that just did the job. Was there a special trick to getting the last two valves (inlet and exhaust) with the valve tool? I havent tried yet but just from eyeballing it it doesnt look like the toyotool will sit flush with the retainer because of the plastic piping going across. Not the coolant lines or the metal pipe but the one above those, i think it has to do with the heating systen or something.....any info would be greatly appreciated!
