PO of mine ate several intake cams before broken valve ate the block. New SB and when he rebuilt the head he used aftermarket valves, springs and retainers. He was looking for longevity and this was years ago as oil overcooling as cause of IC wiping. Been good since on track and street
Thanks, this is just the info I was looking for.

Head is off. Here's a picture of the bent valve and where it cleaned some carbon off the piston. The head is off to the machine shop.
