I'm finishing up a rebuild on a good friend's Duetto motor. When I got it from him the head had supposedly been redone, so I concentrated on the bottom end. That's all done, and now it's time to put the head on.

I discovered that the supposedly rebuilt head has serious problems. Chief among these is that the seats have been cut down too far. I would have to create custom shims to make this thing work, and I really don't want to do that.

I need new valve seats. Anybody know a source for these?

Spruell has them. I would guess that John Norman at Alfa parts has them as well.

There are some other options. Have the tops of the valve stems ground to shorten them.

Or have some standard shims ground down as well.
