I have an 88 we are re-building the engine on.. Head has been at the shop for over 2 months. I gathered up the new valves for it. The guy who owns the shop said it needed new seats for the valves and he would get them. He has supposedly ordered 3 different sets of seats, and has yet to get the correct ones. This shop has been re-building engines for over 50 years

My quetions is----Are these seats special?? If I hustled up the seats from somewhere else, could he install them for me with his equipment??

I don't know what is special about them, although the spec book we had when I worked in the shop in the aftermarket listed an odd size which was incorrect. Is this a fleetline 88 or a super 88. Is it a gas or diesel? How about more details? If a fleetline I would put Super valves and seats in it. J.

It is a gas burner. It is not a super 88. I am just replacing the valves with the same type that was in the head. This whole project has went south since it began. Had to replace block, crank, pistons, sleeves, manifold. But sometimes it goes this way and you just have to grin and bear it. Thanks for your response.
