    A couple of questions

    Does anyone sell the WKA tech tools for a flathead anymore? I've Googled it and can't find where they're available?

    Also, is there an optimum valve seat width for the intake and exhaust?

    Charlie Sox was the manufacturer and seller of tech tools for many years. He no longer offers the flathead tech tool kit. They haven't been available for many years now.
    I don't know if he might have a no go gauge or two still lying around there in old inventory, but he was the one approved source.

    I'm sure that Lewis Stout has the ability to make up a kit, or at least individual tools...although it might be expensive to produce one-off tools since there is little demand for a tech kit for the flathead anymore.

    Your best chance of getting some tech tools would be in a buy-out or finding someone who used to build/tech flatheads who's getting out.
    I recently saw a fairly complete set available very inexpensively -- I almost bought them just to have spares to spares.
    They're out there -- you just have to do some digging.
    Once you get them bought, make sure to get them certified -- if you've got a friend that works in a tool crib at a large factory or machine shop, sometimes they can help you with this.
    I still try to get all of my tech tools and gauges re-certified each year.
