How to tell if your valves are sealing?

Recommended Posts

I have my head off and for good measure, I wanted to test if my valve were seating properly. Is it possible to just fill the head with gasoline to see if any liquid leaks out the valves? Or is there a better way?

I usually use a solvent (gas would work) same as you and check to see if they leak after its poured into the ports.

What kind of solvent? Maybe something like lighter fluid?
