Edelbrock Valve Help

Post  austin460 on June 6th 2013, 2:22 pm

Want to replace the valves in my Edelbrock heads.
I understand the exhaust valves are shorter than stock and believe the Pontiac Valves (SG6007) fit nicely. What I would like to know is, what is the best inlet valves to complement these, as the Pontiac valves have a .250 tip length.
Also has anyone fitted any standard length valves in these heads if so what does it take to do and is it worth it.
Thanks for any help its greatly appreciated.

Are you wanting to install larger valves or just need a std. replacement for your heads ?Or are you needing a different length valve ?A few details are needed in your question .I had to replace two ex valves in my edel. heads .I went with replacement valves from edel.SI valves has a good selection of valves maybe contact them .

I put Ford Racing valves in my set, 2.25 / 1.76 ones from Lem, they worked great and got the a 2" installed height I was looking for.

Thanks People
Think I am gonna go with straight edel replacements. These are used heads that I bought. The valves that were with them were like a can of beans (57 varieties don't think 2 were the same length lol).

Manofmerc what is the quality of the edel valves like? Did you have yours backcut?

Just curious dfree did you have to use much shim to get your installed height?

Thanks

No other than locators very little.

Here's a pic of the heads on the motor.

Cheers dfree that's a nice looking engine.
Think I'm gonna have to stick to edel valves as my spring height is 1.9" so the motorsport valves would leave me with at least 0.1" of shim under each spring and think I would like to run as little shimming as poss.

Just one more question how come the car in your avatar turns into a camel when I view it on my mobile, and does the camel have a big block in it?

Thanks for the Help

The valves from edelbrock are an excellent quality .Although they are expensive .The last one I bought I got from summit .I am not positive but this company SI valves might can match the std. edelbrock dimentions .Here is there web address www.sivalves.com .I bought a set from them fro my 428 and was really pleased with the quality and price (about $200 with shipping ) Good luck to you .Doug

FYI

Post  austin460 on June 15th 2013, 6:19 pm

Went over a mates today he had some A429 exhausts and B429 inlets tried them both in the heads and with the .060" spring locators I was a little short of my desired 1.9" spring height, so am gonna use these valves with +0.50" valve collets which will allow me to shim to my installed height.
Thanks For everyone's input.   Cool
