hardened valve seats ?

i was wondering if i have got hardened valve seats from the factory to run unleaded/lpg ? petrol is about 2 bucks a litre while gas is about 75 cents a litre over here, so i'm seriously thinking about, but if i gotta pull the heads to get valve seats machined in, its prob a winter project.

Re: hardened valve seats ?

Ive run mine on gas & unleaded for four years and it started missing about 8 onths ago, Im not keeping this motor so I have just kept driving it but If your replacing seats and valves anyway you might aswell just start using it now. You will need to have your Dizzy recurved tho.
