You'd be best off either getting new valves or getting the existing ones built up on the seat and re-grinding. I doubt that the difference you quote would be a big problem in normal running.

I think also you may be able to get seats fitted if you know a good engine repair shop that can supply basic seats and fit them.

Don't go taking too much off the head unless absolutely necessary.

 :) ;) ;) ;) :D 8)   Hi just to let you all know i had new valve seats fitted at £70.50, if i could i would show you its smling face, but it wouldn,t pose with a smile. Still at £70.50 it knocked the smile off mine for a bit, but then i smle because i still have an origional head and years of wear available to me. Thanks for all the advice.
