Thanks for concern...several years back, this was done a different way, as can be seen in this picture on a 1993-245.

A semi-truck valve stem was used, and a plate riveted inside valve cover (prevent oil from splashing upwards, along with stainless steel scrubbing pad (Scotch Brite) inserted above plate, which is not seen. It has worked fine.

I'm just experimenting currently...I will be monitoring oil consumption. Engine is not an oil burner, and has plenty of power, but oil rings might be sludged a pinch. I'm just doing a quick test to rule out blow-by or not...if blow-by, I will re-ring engine..
