    I picked up a set of barely used Comp 26986 beehive valve springs today. Think they will work on the 56 Olds heads with a couple modifications. They're the same free height as a factory 371 beehive spring. About .2 smaller ID at the bottom/big end and about .07 smaller ID at the top. If I use the right Comp retainers I should just maybe have to modify the seat where they sit in the head.

    371 stock left. Comp 26986 right.

    Specs on the 26986
