[DaimLan] Valve stem oil seals

Can anyone please suggest a source of valve stem oil seals for my V4.5
Daimler? The valve stems are 5/16" in diameter and the valve guides 5/8". I
am thinking of seals of the inverted cup type. Richard Brown.

Had my heads on my 4.5l overhauled 18 months ago by Mike Roddy Jaguar in
Moorabbin (melbourne). I am pretty sure he used K-line guides in mine. Will
make further enquires.

Thanks to those who have replied, but I’m still looking for a source of
these!

Not sure what has gone before here, but Russ Carpenter (CD Automotive
Services near Dorking, Surrey, UK) recommends MG Metro Turbo valve stem oil
seals for the 2.5 V8. I’ve just fitted a set. The tops of the valve guides
require slight machining to retain the seals. Metro Turbo valve springs also
fit this engine, also recommended by Russ. Available through most motor
factors I think. Stainless steel valves are available from David Manners in
Birmingham UK.
Apropos the SP250 stainless steel tubular exhaust manifolds (headers) which
I’ve mentioned before and recently fitted, I can confirm that the oil filter
can be changed and the sump drained without disturbing either side. They seem
to be fine so far, with a slightly crisper note to the all important sound!
My plan to take the SP on the DLOC Millennium Continental Tour to the Italian
Lakes failed at the last minute - I managed to debug the engine and get it
running fairly well, but didn’t have time to sort out the brakes which,
having fitted stainless steel pistons, new seals and braided stainless brake
hoses, wouldn’t stop binding. I suspect the restrictor valve. There is
adequate clearance between pedal rod and master cylinder. Has anyone had
similar problems?
PS For Payton et al. Russ Carpenter already does a timing cover front
crankshaft oil seal conversion for the 2.5 V8 motor, but I don’t know what
seal he uses. It costs around $150 altogether.
