Hi Brit
I'm going w/- Swarf on this one, about  50 years ago we did an engine up (S/rocket) and were given the wrong head parts at the motorbike parts shop, I think it was the valves , they had the collet grooves in a different ( lower ) position and springs were binding and that wore the follower's out in about a week

Now that sounds a very likely scenario for my buggered followers!
