What would be the bests seals to use on our motor? Remember that we do not have vacu-pan,or pcv system in place.
The valves are 11/32 manley stainless,with bronze valve guides.

Hans, I have always used and like the white teflon seals. I've never had any troubles with them cracking after they get old nor leaking.

The best valve stem oil seals you can get are the graphite-impregnated Teflon with the steel jacket. You can get them through K-Line.

The white Teflon oil seals everybody is familiar with, are good too. Just remember to use stem sleeves.

Viton.

That's all, nothing else.

They look like black rubber, but are of a MUCH higher quality, are flexible so they conform to the stem well, and are small in diameter so they fit tightly to the valve guide.

Do a google search. Good Stuff.

Good Luck!
