chipped valves must be a common problem with the HF heads. My 91 HF had a chipped valve, and by "chipped" I mean that about 1/4 of the valve was gone. But I never hear of chipped valves in 92-95 CX's even though it's the same engine. They must have addressed the problem in '92.


Oh, and I've always scraped the head with a putty knife, less chance of nicking the head that way.
