I'm having my heads reconditioned. Nothing fancy, just restored to original. What brand do you recommend for springs, valves, etc.? Thanks

If the valves need replacing, Manley street stainless are a good choice. Springs should be matched to your cam - what are you using?

Haven't bought it yet but it'll be correct for the L79 327/350. OEM # 3863151.

Use GM #3911068 or Federal-Mogul/Speed-Pro #VS-677 springs (same spring - F-M makes the springs for GM). Don't use "hot-rod" springs.
