Hi, I can get valves made but for 2 would be very expensive. I Usually have them made in far larger quantities but they retail at £28-95 each plus vat. I do not do the long ones. Long valves are fitted because the cam has been reprofiled. You could fit another cam with a larger base circle & standard length valves, it may work out cheaper in the long run. If the car is only usedas a fast road car then tandard valves would suffice.

Try Kent cams, piper cams etc. Moss may have something. It is possible that the standard valves you tried had 'Mushroomed' at the top. It is also possible to fit standard valves with a reprofiled cam using larger shims from a Rover 2300/2600 available from RB in Lincoln, it depends by how much the base circle of the cam has been reduced.
