Hi Gasengin, This is not very engineering like but without taking my engine apart I can tell you that the tail end of my exhaust valve ,protruding from the engine casting, measures2 1/4",(two and one quarter inches) to the top of the valve pushrod. Now if you can determine the length from seat bottom to where valve stem emerges from engine casting you should be in the ball park. I hope this gives you a place to start from.

Mine happens to be apart right now... From the front of the valve to the end of the stem is 5". From the back of the valve to the end of the stem is 4-13/16"

Mine is an early engine with the single flywheel if that makes any difference.
