What about the option of just buying a partially machined head where the valve area has not been done. Then the buyer could machine the stems any direction they want, given there is enough material.John
If that happens I think it will be a welcomed option by many customers. Many have paid extra for re-angled big valves in the past and more will follow.
The FA port floor is already raised. All you have to do is tilt the guide, the valve seat along with it and match the port to the seat. If you keep the guides at 1/2" diameter then you will be offering something that has never been available before. You would be providing one of the most significant Norton head upgrades since the advent of the FA raised port floor. While you're at it your could clean up the shape of the exhaust port floor as that was a bit too rough with the original FA heads.
