Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone has a preference on valve stem seals? I see felpro has a kit and that I can also buy them individually on Morris (crown). Any preference? TIA

If you're planning on sending your head to a machine shop, there are seals that require machining the area where the valve stem comes up through the head. The seals cost a bit more, but IMHO, they're worth the extra cost for the seals and the cost for the machining.
If you're interested I can look up the number.

Good Luck, L.M.

My plan was to do the seals in place removing the springs and keepers for now. If it doesn’t solve my issues then I was going to do a head rebuild at some point.

Then, yep. Fel-Pro all the way.

If you end up having the head worked, I suggest these:
Valve Stem Oil Seal
