It is called a bent valve. You will likely find the guide is damaged also and needs to be replaced along with the valve. You will also need to have the valve seat redone.

If the heads are not ported or otherwise modified the cheaper way home might be to just buy a replacement casting and move your stuff to the new head. Have a valve jbb done and put it back together.


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