Problem is they're only worth around $ 500 - 1000 when completed.
If that last line is not correct please let me know; it's just what I've been told elsewhere.
Any suggestions welcome.
I agree that you would be lucky to get a $1000 for them. I have a set of mildly ported 2V closed chambers with 4V valves, double springs and single groove collets. Have not been on the car since being reco'ed with new exhaust guides and hardened seats for unleaded.
Anytime I have mentioned anything like a grand (they owe me more than that) the enquirer has disappeared so fast they would leave Victor Bray for dead.
Do yourself a favour and put the $2500 towards a set of alloys. If you only want to rev to 5500 you only need the cheaper valves and springs combination. Would have to consider rockers on top of this though as I believe the alloys will only accept the bigger diameter studs
