My RV

I have a 1983 Ford 460 engine and it has sat for over 9 years now and when
starting it a few valves have been sticking is there some type of an oil
treatment I can use to fix this problem I had douched the pistons before
starting it with WD -40 I live in Arizona where there is hardly any
moisture before starting it but still a few valves are sticking with bad
oil on the guides please advise thx

Re: My RV

I have found the best way to loosen up a slightly stuck valve is to remove
the valve cover, apply air to the cylinder and bring the piston to tdc, and
then hit the top of the valve a few times with a brass hammer. this will
open the valve, and the air will help the springs close it. also the air
will let you hear when the valve closes.
