Has anyone used the viton valve stem oil seals that were advertised on Ebay awhile back and does anyone have the email address of the person that was selling them?

John,

Mason Racing Engines used Viton seals on my engine, but they didn't come from eBay. He won't use anything but these seals on what he builds.

Thanks Paul,

I think my valve guides are worn slightly. I get some smoke on start up after sitting awhile. Mine is a 72 I think it has single springs. If it is the single spring,and I have to check that I can use the bonnet type. I am trying to find a source.

John,

You will have to pull the head to install the new guides, so that is the time to have the machine shop (or you, because I know your machining skills) cut down the guide tops to allow for the seals to fit over the top.

I found the oil pan you wanted if you still need it.

See you at Larz for Day of Triumph!!
