Got some news for you so you should start financially planning on this.

The reason you are having to adjust valves and it getting hard to start is the valves namely the intake valves are deforming and sinking up in the head.

You ARE going to need to replace them and I would not go back with stock valves or stock springs when you do.

I also don't recommend just pulling the head off to do it and putting it back on without changing the base gasket on the cyl and since you're that far, you check the rods for any excess movement and at a minimum replace the rings.

Complete set of good valves $288
Springs $125

That is hard to say, as long as you are not adjusting the valves every few weeks you will be able to buy some time.

Yeah we have the parts or should say have access to them.

Guess we could do a kit and sell it on the site.

No particular time, just keep checking the oil.

Axles and bearing are normal on all vehicles.

Would be curious why you had to replace front diff and running low of fuel a lot will harm the fuel pump.

Big kevs performance has a smoking deal on +1.5 intake & +1 exhaust. And a real fair price on doing the work. Also 100 on springs
