    Hi!
    I've got 3 pair of heads to my 350, -78 -85 -87, and all of them have one really small crack in at least one exhaust valve seat. Is this common? Is it recommended to put in some new seats? This truck is only for cruising. Everything on this 350 is std.

    Need help and need to get this truck going soon!!!
