Fit Model A and B engines 1928-1934.
For use with stock 1928-1934 Ford Model A and B valve springs.
3/16" thick, CNC precision machined steel, set of 8 pcs.

Installed HOT (heat with torch until blue) slide over valve guide, firmly contacting chamber ceiling wall surface. Tap it home.  
The spacer will improve valve spring pressure and help avoid valve float at higher RPMs.   
double check for spring bind before starting engine.  
Crank the engine over by hand and observe and measure.
To be used with engine utilizing stock Model A or B valve springs.
ALWAYS rotate the engine and observe for spring bind. Not common but possible on extreme cam grinds.

DETAILS:  Stock valve springs check out at 35 lbs at 2.5" installed height.
With spacers installed, spring pressure should be (+-) 52 lbs at 2-5/16" installed height  (thanks to Phred Hollister).
Engines may "run out of steam" at 2800 - 3200 rpm with stock springs and a high lift camshafts (valve float due to weak springs). 
With spacers It should now pull through 3500 rpm in 2nd gear.
You'll smile and start looking for a longer stretch of road.
