I used the viton ones I got of ebay. So far, so good. Seem like they were quality.

Viton. Often already included in good "valve grind" gasket sets.

dislike felpro.

for stem seals i prefer OEM but thats just me. make sure you lap the valves back in if you do this with the head(s) off the motor.

Not removing the head, just replacing the valve stem seals

makes me so nervous to do the air pressure thing to keep a valve in place. ugh. actually, thats gonna be hard as F because of how you install a valve stem seal. good luck

You could do the rope trick through the spark plug hole
