The valves might be in spec stem diameter wise but some idiot (namely me) ground to much off the end of the stem the last time I set them and now they would be too short. Don't know of any way of adding to the length of the valves and do not want to cut the seat down any as they look to be in good shape. I have priced new valves and they appear to have dropped in price compared to the last time I price them a few years ago. Still have to get the engine block and parts cleaned up and sent off to a machine shop but it has gotten very cold here and not supposed to warm back up until the weekend.
Stew, just curious, were the seats bad ultimately causing you to shorten the stems after a seat reface?
