Valvetrain



Vavletrain Components

The valvetrain is an important part of any engine combination. Whether your engine is stock or full race, or anything in between, having a correctly matched, properly functioning valve train is of equal importance. If you are not sure which components are right for your engine, feel free to send us an e-mail or give us a call for a recommendation. Below you will find a variety of valves, springs, seals, and other timing components to put together a first class valvetrain.

Swirl-polished oversize Stainless valves are available in full sets of (16) for all heads, 1968 through 1979. They are ready to install with 11/32” stems, and any competent machine shop in your area can machine the oversize seats. We do not recommend installing false hardened seats unless you are repairing a damaged head, nor do we recommend reusing stock valves. With the high nickel content of the Caddy heads, and stainless valves (which are very difficult to damage), you should be able to get many, many miles of trouble free operation from your upgraded heads, even on unleaded fuels.
