  1. Measure the free length and the tension of each spring. If the measured value exceeds the specified limit, replace the spring.

* Squareness deformation limit: 1.6 mm (1.3 for dual springs)

Racing Valve Springs

For RPMs in excess of stock (higher than 6400 RPM) use racing valve springs.

  • Stock springs are redlined at 6400 rpm, and will often go to 6800 RPM
  • Factory GX springs are good to about 7500 rpm (higher than the points distributor will rev)

Dual Valve Springs

Large valves work best at high RPM. When revving over 6000 RPM, dual valve springs are called for. The stock A12GX springs are good for 6600 RPM (and some report higher RPMs).


Racing/aftermarket dual springs are usually good for 9000 RPM and shouldn't be used in a street engine as they cause accelerated wear on the valve guides.
