Hey fella's. Just want to know what pressure to use when changing valve springs over with the head still on. I'm assuming around 100PSI but assumption can get you into trouble.

you can get away with as low as 50-60psi, but a little higher makes it easier to crack the exhaust valve collets

Thanks guy's, all done over the weekend, ended up using 80 PSI. Not the easiest job in the world to accomplish but we got there.
