So, I guess pre stelite valve seats. I have two of those generators, neither is running. One was nearly complete, one is for parts. They got put on the back burner. May be a while before I get the one running.

I've run my model E many times at full throttle for up to 15 hours at a time for the last 35 years using unleaded gasoline and have never experienced a problem with valve seats. I'm sure stellite valve seats are better but are they really needed? Was oilers just a gimmick?
