cool Re: Which springs to use on my 460

If you have D3VE standard-length valves, then the 926 springs will work with their intended 1.82" installed height and open/seat pressures, as the 926 single spring/damper package.

If you have D0VE standard-length valves (~0.100" long in a D3VE head), then the 924 springs will work with their intended 1.900" installed height and open/seat pressures BUT you need to futher modify the D3VE heads in order for them to properly accept the 924-16 which is a dual spring w/damper.
