E63/64 I think I'm gonna do it.... Valve stem seals etc

Well after shopping around and talking to a few Indy techs ... And BMW techs ... And my ford techs ... I think I'm going to buy the AGA valve stem tool kit... The carbon removal kit and the coolant pipe and tackle it with my master certified diesel tech.... Yup I finally found someone who isn't afraid to tackle this beast... I mean I have some mechanical aptitude but no tools ... This guy has his own shop ... With a lift he does side work at his house .... We watched the videos read the instructions .. Looks like although time consuming and tedious ... It doesn't look too bad ... I have a second car to drive and I'm going to help him out and give him some cash... Things aren't for sure but I'm excited for the challenge and save a few bucks .... Would it be easier to pull the engine and do it on the stand or in the car .... I know the tools are meant for in car repair but maybe it will be easier with the engine out? Dunno but I'll let you know how it goes and if I do it ... I'll post pics .... Any tips from members who have done this ??

You need to buy the special tools such as for the Double VANOS Alignment Tools & Valve Stem Seal Tool Kit, etc. I prepare the old way to hold up the valve into place after removed the valve keeper as such as the rope instead of the air pressure because you have all the time to work with that valve. You research thru the youtube the process to do this. Replace with the correct specification and don't use aftermarket Valve Stem Seals. Also, have with you a magnet to pick up the keeper and non-magnetic stick to aligning the keeper in place. Apply a light grease to the valve stem where the keeper to be seated. NOTE: covers all holes of the cylinder head to avoid drop the keepers in the holes. Once you got the hang of it, such as your boths hands have to coordination it will takes you at least 30 minutes per valve from removing the keeper to replacing it. Multiple that with 24 times.

Thanks for the tips!! Doesn't the All German Garage tool kit come with most every tool you need ?? I went to their website and read the instructions and watched their video ... I know the job is time consuming ... But I figured it's something me and a knowledgable tech could accomplish although it may take longer but I got more time than money right now and a second car to drive .... Worth it to save a couple grand
