Okay, so I was cleaning up my basement and stumbled on a box marked, "AEB Valvetrain"
Inside was all the lifters, valves, retainers, seats and springs for an AEB head.
Let me cut to the chase.
Will AEB springs work in a PL head...if so, would they be considered, "HD"...
Will AEB Lifters work in a PL Head...if so, would they be considered "lightweight" (think AEG 2.0L 8v)
Assuming yes to all the questions, should I just slam the AEB springs, seats, retainers, and lifters into a PL head and call it a day?
TIA

Re: 16v head components vs 20v head components...few ?'s (ValveCoverGasket)

with my most rigerous test ..available to me at home, at 11:30pm, I just pushed on a set of stock ABA valves and stock AEB valves, and the AEB's seemed to give a lot more resistance, going to test out their strength in a lab tomorrow, see what it takes to bind a set

Re: 16v head components vs 20v head components...few ?'s (Mr Black)

...hence my post....
also, FWIW...I checked the diameter against ABA springs, and they are the exact same diameter, and I know ABA lifters work in a 16v head, which leads me to believe the springs would work, which tells me the AEB springs would FIT in a 16v head...

Pretty sure the exhuast side of the 20v and 16v's are the same (as the ABA as well). Intake side of the 20v uses a single, light spring and much smaller lifter. Pretty sure the exhaust lifters on a 20v are the same as 16v, not the light ones.
