Valve Spring Retainers, Locks and Seals

Valve springs require retainers of the correct design, dimensions and materials to work properly, whether it be 4140 chrome moly steel, light weight tool steel, or titanium.  For double or triple springs and 7 or 10 degree locks, we can supply the correct retainers for you.  Correctly matching the locks to the valve stems is essential for the locks to function.  The tang on the locks only temporarily holds the valve stem until the lock seats in its taper, retaining the valve by its “collet” effect.  The final detail is the valve seals.  Seals are available in stock umbrella style or positive-stop style, in either Teflon or Viton materials.  Our engine staff will be glad to assist you in selecting these components.
