the engine is being rebuilt but i need help with a part number please

its for a 1990 3.5 V8EFI the guy here tells me its an oil seal for the valve? not sure i can do most things but this is beyond my ability.

anyway i can't get the part over here (OMAN) so need to get some from UK.

Part number appears to be ERC7865 (see http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-ERC7865) although the picture looks slightly different. Rimmer Bros say that these are inlet only, are the exhaust ones different or doesn't it have any on the exhausts? However, I recently bought a complete top end gasket set for my P38 engine and it came with gaskets and seals for earlier engines too. I'm fairly sure there was a bag of seals looking like your picture. I'm working away from home until Friday but once I'm back I can have a look and see if the dimensions are the same. If they are you are welcome to them as they are no use to me.

Seals are on inlet only as the intake stroke can suck in oil down the valve stem. I read somewhere on this forum that there is a later oil seal - but I think it needs different valve stems or something.

The later seal is the more conventional type but it needs a stepped top to the valve guides which the earlier ones don't have. The gasket set I bought may well have both types, the ones that you have and the ones in the Rimmer Bros picture. I'll check for you when I get back home at the weekend.
