For my pulling engine, we took some used titanium small block chevy intake valves and put them in a lathe until my intake valve is 1.800", and my exghaust valve is 1.500". We reamed the vlave guides in the block to fit the chevy valves, and picked up some high pressure springs, and titanium valve retainers and keepers just laying around the shop. All thanks to JB's Auto Machine! check out there website if you need any high peformance professional engine rebuilding/machining. www.jbsautomachine.com

Awesome job! This is the kind of workmanship that is very sadly missing today!

Great job, hope you have a strong starter to turn over that cam.

Should be very strong engine.

Thanks for sharing.
