    I just pulled my valves out for cleaning they were a bit gummy after 800 miles.  After I reinstalled them for whatever reason I noticed that there is a bit of air coming out the holes in the covers.  Is this normal or did I do something wrong?Hmm [^o)]

    Shouldn't be any leaks. I'd double check the bellows for any tears. Be sure they are sealing properly,even around the valve shafts. Might want to make sure you installed the bellows washer correctly also, seen some guys installl them upside down.

    You could have a pin hole in the bellows, but there will be some air forced out the hole from valve movement. If it has air coming out at idle, you should disassemble check for a hole and most likley you will need to replace the bellows.
