thats a big job

irst you need to remove all accesories hanging off the head.then

you need to remove inlet and exhaust manifold.you need to drain

engine coolant.then remove head. once head is removed you can get

at the valves.note when head is removed you will need to examine

all other valves for seating and condition of valve guides. one

would also try to figure the reason the valve burned out in the

first place.also check all valve stem seals. so if all is good,

replace bad valve, make sure it is seated properly bt doing a valve

grind job.then put engine back together again.depending on what

sort of engine it is, you may have to reset the timing.
