Original 351C 4V 2-piece, 4-groove valves vs. single-groove (PHOTOS)
#1
Had a very hard time finding a comparison shot online when I went to buy my new ones, so I figured I'd add some here for reference.

The 2-piece, 4-groove valves on the left are the originals from my open-chamber '72 D1ZE heads. Those on the right are new Alex's Parts stainless 1-piece single-groove valves with matching Alex keepers and retainers:
