Due to a mishap I need to replace my valves in my '86 hydraulic head. Ordered a set of valves which are supposed to measure 3.740" long for both exhaust and intake. I get the valves and they measure 3.748 to 3.762. That's .008 to .022" longer than they are supposed to be. Will the hydraulic lifters compensate for this? Can they be ground down to the correct length? Or do I just take them back. The original exhaust valves were sodium filled, but I am not so sure of the replacements. Seems exhaust valves are hard to find for this MF engine.
Mishap caused by intermediate shaft pulley coming loose. Pulley shot. Seeing two different replacements, one that is flat across and one that has sides. Which is the best to use or is there no difference?
