Opinions on Elgin HPV valves

Post by Ron Miller » Sat May 16, 2020 12:48 pm

What's your opinion on Elgin HPV valves? Who manufactures this valve for Elgin? What kind of seat and open pressure will this valve tolerate? I'm interested in HPV-27 BB Chevy 2.250 11/32 and HPV-20 BB Chevy 1.88 11/32. For the record, I did call Elgin yesterday, they are closed on Fridays.

Thanks for looking, =D>

Elgin manufactures most, if not all, of their own products. They are not simply a distributor.

I have used their valves, cams and other engine parts withh good success over the years.

Looking at the video BOOT posted here the Elgin valves he bought are Chinese...should not be surprised I guess. Not to say they won't work...
