602 Crate Engine Parts

Bulletproof Your ‘602 Valve Train: Every racer who runs a ‘602 crate knows the stock valve springs are a real problem. The stock Chevy valve springs lose a lot of pressure after just a few nights of racing.

On the ‘602 crate motor, we are concerned about losing the valve spring pressure when the stock springs go south.  When the spring loss a significant amount of pressure, the valves will start to float.  This not only causes the engine to loose rpm and power but also very damaging to the valve train.

We have reached an agreement with Dynamic Cylinder Heads LLC, a company in South Dakota, on the sale of our entire 602 Crate engine product line plus Vortec, Vortec Bow-Tie and Dart SS cylinder head programs, machinery and processes. See video on our home page. Here is Nick German’s contact information:
