Have a bare 1928 Chevy head, with plans on using it on a 26 T Roadster.

What modern engine valves, springs and pushrods will work. Thanks

I found a set at Chicasha a few years back The ones from an older 6 cyl chevey are pretty close.

Joe:
most automotive machine shops will have a universal parts catalog that will list valves(and other engine parts) by general dimensions ...head size,stem diameter,stem length ,keeper type etc ...
i have been able to fit valves and often pistons to obsolete engine types by comparing dimensions and in some cases doing some re-machining to accomplish necessary changes...it often works well to take a larger stem diameter and ream the worn guides ...over length stem can be recut and necessary keepers machined (sometimes i have had to precision grind due to hardness of stem)...
you probably already knew this but i thought it may be worth mentioning
best regards
gene french

Thanks everyone. what I was looking and hoping for was to find an existing OEM valve, springs, etc. that could be used with little or no modification. Thanks again, Joe
