    Hope I'm doing this right, trying to send a PM.
    A while back you responded to a thread I started about looking for Eagle crs5700slw rods.
    I probably missed out by now but you were offering me an Eagle crank and rods.
    Just sold one of my other cars, so now have funds to get back to building the 327.

    Deal still available by any chance?

    I use height mic like one of these:
    www.jegs.com/p/Proform/Proform-Valve-Spring-Height-Mic/748233/10002/-1


    I wouldn't guess, it could be way, way off. Get a height mic, figure what you have, then shop for springs.

    Hey,

    I was reading through a reply you made a couple of days ago regarding valve spring install height. Your reply about your process was very helpful. One quick question . . . what tool did you use to measure the installed height of each spring, retainer and keeper combo?

    I'm working on rebuilding a set of heads for a street cruiser and doing the work myself. I'm new to the intricacies of head work and quickly learning a lot. I had been tempted to just chuck the new springs, retainers and keepers in and go; but, I figure why not take some extra time and get things set up as best I can.

    I wondered if a 4 inch would work. Thanks for your time!
