Why would anyone reuse old valve seals? They get hard brittle and stop sealing. You have to take out the valves to clean and cut the valve seats anyway.

Got 350 miles on new motor and already burnt 4 qts of oil,said they re-used old seals because old motor was not smoking and seals were still pliable,now,gotta put new seals in while on truck.

dont expect to pay less than $5k on a stock re-build installed. stroke it and the minimum for a good build should come in around $7 installed. ball park
