Default Valve Job DIY?

Well my ranger had a burnt or bent valve and apparently needs a valve job. I looked around a bit in here and didn't see a DIY for it. Is there one somewhere I'm not seeing or a YouTube video? Any help is appreciated. Thanks..

You will need to pull the heads, that will involve quite a bit of work, but its not that bad, as for the valves, you should take the heads to a competent machine shop and have that job done. When reinstalling, make sure ever mating surface is really clean.

I'm in the process of doing this myself, I didn't want to spend $2600.00 to have it done by a shop! It really isn't that hard, you WILL need a manual and the right tools, think metric! And a torque wrench. Just take your time and ask questions. Good luck!
