Valves Angle

I am having the valves redone and I am wondering if anybody has the angles/specs for the valves. Your help would be appreciated as I have searched high and low. Thank you!

Re: Valves Angle

The valve job on a Star is the same as for any standard engine. Basic 45 degree valve and seat angles with with 30 degree top and 60 degree bottom clearance on the seat resulting in a contact area on the valve 1/3 the width of the valve face positioned in the middle of the valve face.
