 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.

Install our “Look-A-Like” valve springs, retainers and locks and you will not have to worry about valve float again.

Look-A-Like replacement valve spring for the ‘602 Crate Motor. Same wire diameter, O.D. and installed height as the stock spring. While the stock springs last a few hundred laps, they will last a couple thousand laps.
