    While doing a compression check the sun just happened to shine in the spark plug hole and to my surprise I could see the open exhaust valve. Playing around I got to see the open intake valve too.



    These pictures are of my parts bike 537 miles post new rings, gaskets, valve lapping and valve stem seals.. From what I can see which admittedly isn't much, it looks good to me.

    Intake valve:



    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Looks good to me. The compression test will tell you if they're seating well, but they don't look blackened so I bet you're OK.

    The parts bike was Darrell's bike -- I think that is who you meant -- or are you trying to cause trouble?
