I broke a timing belt and whipped out some valves . I have found some at $114 for the intake Valves , and $128 for the exhaust valves . This seems a little high to me , and if I am going to do one side I might as well do the whole thing and replace all the valves . Could anybody give me some suggestions on a good online store for parts.
Thank you

Depending on the general condition of the engine, undamaged side of engine should be just fine with re-work of original valves.

IOW No need to replace a valve unless it is worn, cracked, burnt or bent.:cool:

yeah, what he said, take the heads to the machine shop, they can probably get the valves cheaper than you can, if not ya can always look for a used head

I can guarantee that the valves are bent,at least some of them. The most cost effective way to go is usually to find a couple of used replacement heads.
Lap the valves and replace the valve guide seals. Having the heads surfaced is also a good idea.
I allays get my head gaskets from
Dave on EBay . I would appreciate it if you let him know I referred you because he provided the gaskets for the B-Girl
