Post valve prob

one of my valve stems has been mushroomed at the end causing too much play between it and the rocker arm. ive got an idea on how to fix it without taking the head off, but id like your feedback about my idea and that is to grind off the mushroomed part and fabricate a sort of cap that would fit over the stem and make up the length difference causing there to be no gap between it and the rocker arm. does this idea swim or sink?
