Sounds like a fun science experiment. May have to try it and post a video. I haven't found anything wrong with snopes in all the times I have used it.

As I stated earlier, usually when a valve is stuck in a guide and heat will free, it tends to pop free and snap shut. Whatever had these guides glued would soften up from the heat. and let the valve slowly close.

I agree with whoever said sugar will not mix directly with gasoline, and lleast not right away. HOWEVER, if you mix the brown sugar with a little water, and mix that solution in some alchohol, like gas tank treatment, it mixes real good. I burned some of that solution in a pan and it burned down to a black plastic like coating on the pan, just like the black stuff that coated the inside of the head and manifold.

I have seen snopes wrong. They're not as bad as those Myth Busters yo-yos, but their findings are still their opinion. Like all things, no matter how unlikely, it has probably happened to someone.

Yes, Mikespeed35, you're right, but I covered that earlier. I have considered most of what people have suggested, but after getting the valves out, brushing out the valve guide holes and cleaning the valve stems, the valves are free as a breeze. If the guides were too tight, the valves would still be tight.

Someone had put in new intake valves fairly recently. Problem is they put them on the exhaust side, and the exhaust on the intake side. I'm lapping the valves in now, and they are all sealing beautifully.

One thing to remember. I don't, as a rule, use the WAG method when doing this kind of work. I post this wild sounding theory because I hd exhausted most other explanations.

If the guides slipped after cleaning one could suspect sabotage. Could I lighten up things? When we were kids we would misspell words and remember them with clues.

Guys, it was not my intention to create a stir so soon after being welcomed aboard, but I found this site while searching for an answer to a problem engine. Thanks for all the input.

By the time my gaskets arrive all the valves will be lapped, and it will ready to go back together. I will keep you posted as to the progress.

All of the "Usual Suspects" on this website are pretty passionate about ACD cars. We're all dying to know how this turns out.

Keep us posted. Submit photos of the process. There's instructions how to do this in the Picture Gallery.
