Sorry I dont recall suggesting removing the elephants feet

I suggested taking the whole foot assembly out and grinding the rocker arm so that the foot could be repositioned higher up.

With 33 38 you need longer valves anyway because they sit further toward the piston than the smaller ones

I've not done it with the polaris valves but I bet a bazillion crocksits I could do it in a weekend.
Thanks from tourist and paolo6

Looks like I misunderstood you Bushie, I never heard of elephants feet. Those are round buttons at the end of adjusting screws? So grinding rockers would simply allow me to retract adjustment further out?. I told the shop that was changing the seats and guides that I want valves to be in exactly the same position/depth as originals. I didn't want to have any surprises with the piston contact or increasing the compression ratio/reducing combustion chamber volume.
