Default Springs for heads

Hi,

I have a set of pro coms heads in my stock, that I would like to sell.
I have the heads and the valves, it is 2.05/1.6

But springs, keepers ec ec are missing.

I would like to buy a "set" to finish the heads, so I can sell them.

I'm not looking for any high end parts.

What would you recommend?

Springs are usually determined by the cam and the clearances of the head. Asking without the information is vague and likely not to get any responses. Why waste money on the springs, raising the price, the new owner might not need and not want to pay for?

I was thinking the same, but here (In Denmark) if I will sell then, then they have to be complet assembled.

Here in DK, many do not think like in USA, here a set of alu heads, is a set of alu heads :- (

But 99,99% here will go for at street cam, with max. 0.550 lift (maybe 0.600) and 1.6 rocker arms.

Z28 springs are cheap and supposedly adequate for most.

GM # 3927142 if they're still available. 1st design "off-road" cam springs, .450 something lift. Pretty good all around choice.
