Valve stem seals done for $2500!
Timing I now spot on on the left side the exhaust was off by 1.75 mm with the tool.... I could stick a quarter but not a nickel in the gap... Fixes that issue, even used a new sprocket bolt.
Are the solenoids seated, yes. Pushed and rotated them in all the way, looking with the vc removed the o-ring was seated and you could see a tiny gap between the green body of the solenoid and the cylinder head... Couldn't get it to move any more....
I doubt I could have bent valves if I ha it off by that little when I timed it... But I think it would throw specific cylinders not the general P0300, if it was bent valves
