valve seals/leakdown

Who all has had to replace them yet? Just a random question! Also has anyone done a leakdown test yet?

The leak down test is to check valve seat sealing in the combustion chamber, not valve guide seals, or are you asking two separate questions?

two separate questions lol sorry, both which I have done numerous times to count, just hit over 100k and it's showing signs of needing valve seals. might as well do a leak down while I am at it.
