Actually that first link has the revised link to Valve spring tech.

If the info you copied above was from Lunati, it's prollably OK. If I see anything that needs pointing out, I'll do so but like I said the info is likely just fine.

When I look at my cam on summit racing. I see a link that says suggested parts. Should I go ahead and just get new springs and stuff? The bag of springs I got from the shop should work according to the tech?
Suggested parts.

A cam kit is useful only when nothing else was altered like decking the block or cutting the heads or changing the rocker ratio.Then you have to go through and check everything.

You will use the height gauge to replace the valve spring. Watch for any steps on the underside (spring side) of the retainer that could throw off the reading. Be sure the valve is fully seated and the gauge is square to the spring pocket and the retainer, AND that the top of the gauge is reading from the same surface of the retainer that the spring will contact.

Once that's established, read the height on the vernier scale. If you need help reading the actual gauge, do a search for how to read a vernier caliper.

That would be 1.825" and 1.840".

Not sure of your specs, just wanted to show you how the numbers on your height checker work.

Thanks pugsy. Im thankful for that info had no clue have to read that thing and google can some times (GOD BLESS GOODLE) make it a lil more detailed then needed.

So if i understand this process at all- I need to go threw every valve and get its height. Then I need to get a shim that brings that height down to or up to 1.700 in.

Thanks again guy.!

Shims go under the springs I believe. So the top of the spring stays at the same place, the shims just bring the bottom up until the height hits 1.700".

Intake needs exactly 1/8" (.125'') and exhaust needs an 1/8 plus .015".

Seems like a lot but I'm no expert on these things. Do you know what thicknesses are available?

Thanks for your reply Pug. I havent hard a chance to look at shims yet. I take care of my wife who is disabled and my 1 1/2 year old son so it hard to work on the engine.
I have almost checked the right bank of the engine and will post all the specs tonight.

So far -
cylinder - 2 had I-8.90 E-8.80
cylinder -4 had I 8.50 E-8.55
cylinder - 6 had I-8.75 E-8.70

I could have a few of those specs backwards but the numbers them selfs are right. I wrote it down but its in the living room and I run the chance of waking my son if i open the bed room door to leave.


I checked with the shims installed.
I did pull the shims to read what they said- They all say. (This side up) *V.S.I. 203*
