<VV> Valve seats MY opinion

In part. One of the epiphanies I had while being frustrated trying to quiet  
the valvetrain in mine was oil level. I think most of the clattering valves in 
 Corvairs is due to aerated oil. When I was over the 'full' line, things were 
 quiet. As the oil level approached the 'add' line, things got a LOT noisier. 
So,  keep the engine full, make sure the pickup doesn't suck ANY air. and 
probably a  better than stock oil pan will help the air to float out before the 
oil is  picked up. I did all of this, and I no longer had valvetrain noise!

The  key is valve train that works like it   should.
