Anyone have detail plans for replacing valves in a 258 in-line 6? It's in my 1980 CJ7.

I do, but they're in a book. Have you looked into swapping a 4.0 head?

What do you think would be easier/CHEAPER?

Personally, I'd got with the 4.0 head. They're plentiful in junk yards - just have to find a decent one. They're designed to flow more freely so you should see an increase in horsepower and hopefully gas mileage. Here are a couple of write-ups:

Try sending a PM to Dozer Dan, I think he did the swap along with an EFI conversion.
