I assume you mean for the 450 DOHC??

Expensive, and you'd have to send the head to Terry for the needed machining.
Great stuff, if you can afford it - not the sort of thing you could do in your garage.
You can depend on the fact that anything Terry does will increase performance.

Incidentally, I don't see those at the Hansen site anymore....

Here's a link to the picture....

He mentions..." This is a complete no machining necessary, drop in coil spring kit for 450's & 500T's.To replace the old worn out T-bars.It comes with much lighter 5mm valves."

Sounds simple right???
I guess with all the time and money in the world....

How cool is that ??!!!
Terry never ceases to amaze me.....

I doubt if I'd ever be able to afford it, or the snappy needle bearing and oil pump conversions.
But a nice daydream for me......

Let me email him and ask him about the price.

Here's what Terry has to say about the valve spring conversion. It's a pretty damn good deal if you ask me!

"I do a complete cylinder head rebuild with the coil spring
conversion the original seats are used and a valve job is done
to make sure they are seated right. That includes the epoxy
coating, and polishing the cam bearings, if a top end oil kit is
installed, then a replacement cam bearing where the tach drive go's
( you will lose the mech tach drive with the oil kit ). the SS valves
come with that kit, doing the head is...975.00 completely finished.

everyone has me do the coil spring kit because they get the valve job &
valve guide installation & epoxy & Hi-temp paint for no charge."


Hope that helps you decide!! :D

yeah GB, I've been following your other thread with regards to the piles of cash one could spend on all these sweet upgrades!!! like I said before..."it's good to have dreams..."

I have a feeling just a stock rebuild is going to put a bit too much pressure on the ol wallet. Maybe on the next one! ;)
