The reason I used this guy was that he came very highly recommended

I told him what the car will be used for, but basically told him to build/prepare it to the very best of his ability

We agreed what would be done, but it seems that he hasn't done a lot of the requested work, stating that it was fine as it was

The head did come back assembled, but not cleaned
That along with the different valves is what got me to start this thread

I have no doubt his knowledge and ability is far greater than mine will ever be, but I think I have a different mindset to him

For example - The way I look at it, mismatched valves can't be right
And if its not right it has to be wrong, and I don't want things to be wrong

I know it's hardly critical, like we've mentioned, it's a weekend toy
But it'll bug me forever knowing the valves 'aren't right'

He also designs cams and headers for these engines, so my intention was to get everything from him so I know it's all correctly matched for the job

(Regarding valve heights.......since I have pushrods and adjustable rockers, do I still need to concern myself with valve heights?)

Thanks again
