Re: Hardening V8 retainers: Any metalurgists out there?

Are the hardened (56) spring retainers that hard to find? I had no problem getting a set a year or two ago. And with the number of 56 engines languishing away almost for the taking, plenty of used ones should be available.

Just a guess, but if you buy the blue print for the part from the PPG it may well show some detail about the hardening specs and perhaps the process used.
