I need the part numbers for the intake and exhaust valves for the D0VE. Seems the valve stems are smaller than the 11/32" ones I have for the later style heads. Also need source on rocker studs, springs, and rocker arms. I am also interested if someone has some for sale reasonably.

Make sure you get the right length valves too. The 72 and newer use a different length.

I discovered the former owner had knurled the valve guides incorrectly making it impossible to install the .341 stems that were supposed to be installed. I am going to drill out and install a set of SEALED POWER Part # VG5061 so that will take care of that problem. I still need springs, spring locks, studs and rocker arms for these heads.

Anything may be fixed in a machine shop. Undersized guides are regularly honed to size and that's all yours will likely need. If they need more than that, then K-liner guide inserts are your next feasible option, then guide replacement, etc. It's no big deal and all the options are perfectly fine provided the current situation lends itself to the option chosen.

I still need springs, spring locks, studs and rocker arms for these heads.
If it's the OEM rocker arms that you want, then we have them (all those OEM valave train parts that you mentioned). No longer available new, we can put together a used set for you if this is what you must do.

Call if interested,

Paul

still looking for stock valve heights...we have to cut in a set of hardened seats and need to know the installed valve heights on these old heads. I know they are different from the 1972 onward that I can find. If someone has this info, it would be much appreciated.

yes but I think the machinist is more concerned from the top of the deck to the end of the valve...top of the guide would be helpful also...thank you very much...we need tom know this info before we cut in the new seats:D
