One method to test the seat/valve sealing is to first add enough mineral spirits to cover the seating junction while holding the valve down with light pressure and apply high pressure air with a blow gun either in the intake or exhaust port and direct it around the seat/valve seal area. Any leak shows up as bubbles and will require additional work.
