Is there any other ways besides removing head cylinder or pulling all the valves, rocker arms and all bolts from the shaft, etc...every week i checked that spark plug,an oil about 1/2 inch inside. it's not overheating but causing little misfire and affected the gas mileages per gallon. original engine only 112k miles. thanks

    I'm guessing cracked head or worn valve guide.How bad is the misfire? Put a vacuum guage on it see if it stays steady or fluctuates.
