grind stem Clips

stem sticks out

retainers

I had a post about valve clearance and a new cam this is what I did. I drilled a scrap block of aluminum and bolted it to my grinder guard. This holds the valve nice and straight. Then my old retainer clips stuck out past the valve stem. You can see the newer clips have the groove in a different location. Also installed stronger spring holders. I think I solved my problem

Norm, I think you added a lot of weight to the valve system. That will load the cam lobe and lifter face more than the stock parts. The stock retainer with a better pin will hold a lot of spring pressure. And it will be lots easier on the cam and lifter. Just my 2 cents, Scott

I have been running the modern setup for years with no side effects

As long as you are using Model T springs ,the little additional weight on the valve stem is negligible.

Norm,

Are those Chevy 350 valves? The retainers look like Chevy 350 to me.

Guys, I got the keepers and spring holders at a very very old auto machine shop almost a museum in Lebanon PA and I remember the old guy saying they were from a Chevy. That's all I know and they FIT!
