    ford windsor valve springs

    I have started rebuilding the heads on my 351 ford windsor engine today but have just realised that there are 2 different lenghts of valve springs. The longer ones have a fixed cotter retainer and the shorter ones have a cotter reatainer that can rotate but I do not know which ones go on what valves?

    it will also depend on what camshaft you use, as the springs are matched to that.
    race engines.

    The whole engine is being put back together standard but with new cam and cam followers.

    standard 351c springs (the ones with the damper spring in, not sure if 2v or 4v) are a cheap upgrade too.
