Tomorrow I'll measure ALL the valve tips on my old, bad set of #906 castings. I KNOW all those valves are the original parts. Sometimes I think "The General" just uses whats available! Especially if it was assembled on a Friday afternoon! BTW, the (my) short-tipped valve HAS the backcut. What I DO know is that for MY particular application I need the .290" tips. The carmakers sure don't make it easy, do they? Oh, and Happy New Year!
