    Default Valve stem seals

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for valve seals that dont need guide machining, for use with triple springs on a gen iv Chevy? Thanks!

    No such animal.

    You sure they are triple springs and not duals with a damper?

    No, I was wrong, they are doubles with damper. Are there seals that can be used with those then without interference?

    With a stock 3/8 diameter valve stem and a stock outside diameter spring, not that I know of.
    The cutter for postitive stop teflon "type" seals is about 70.00 and you can do it yourself with a 1/2 drill motor.
    Do the springs you have even fit the stock spring seats in the heads?

    Sounds like you are trying to swap springs without pulling the heads, correct?

    FWIW. I don't even run seals on my ex. valves, and just have all rubber positive push on seals on the intake. (Although I have just ran umbrellas trimmed down to fit in the spring before)

    I don't like Teflon seals at all. Valve stem killers in my book.
