The inlet valve is p/n 127279, the exhaust is p/n 127273.  Graham Gagne has some in stock in Canada. 

See http://www.canadianstudebaker.com/Engine.htm  under Valves.


Milt Yoder may still have these:

I am going thru my engine parts and found I have the following, I believe they are NOS and NOSR, if any one is interested please email me. They came from a Studebaker dealership many years ago.  Thanks
