My TR have excessive oil leakage through the rear seal and dip stick. A leak
down test shows that the valves are leaking too much air (about 30%). It's
where the leaking sound is the loudest, so I'm thinking that redo-ing the
head is in order.  Anybody know a good machine shop in San Diego area?


And, while the head is being reworked, any suggestions to what should be
done? I drive 15 miles to work each day, mostly on the freeways, but also on
surface streets. Obviously replace the valves and guides. Will polishing
help? Other stuff?
