Need 6.1 Hemi Valve Seals with .525" Guides

Postby bigpoppapreston » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:20 pm

I Need 6.1 Hemi Valve Seals with .525" Guides. Looking for viton steel body seals but i cant find any for .525" diameter guides. The closest that I see are .530". Will the .530 seals work and be tight enough or just settle for the flex body viton seals. Thanks in advance.

I should've mentioned that im going with manley locators and wanting to get away from the top hat style seals by using ordinary viton valve stem seals. Reason being is that i have retainer to seal clearance issues with the top hats. My camshaft is .595" both on the intake and exhaust.

U.S. Seal in Fort Gratiot Michigan may have what I need. Will check Monday.

Also, if you had to, cut them to .500. I used to do that all the time on vortec heads. Cut the .550 seal to .530, and run the seals I like that I usually have on hand.

Harley Davidson sources a viton seal part # 18067-09 that may work for you. Only thing is price wise they're EXTREMLY proud of them.
