When specialty head shops provide CNC ported heads, they are ordered in bare castings so that the guides and valves can be custom fit for the application.

If you have 11/32" valves, *these are not Edelbrock guides*.

+1 on what Brent said. This looks like an 11/32 valve stem in a ⅜ guide. This is very likely not a wear problem as much as it is a parts mismatch problem.


Help them do what they would have done if they had known what they could do.
