Default Valve lifter Reprofiling - 711 Kent engine

I need 8 of my valve lifters reground, and I am having difficulty in finding anyone in Sydney who can do this?

Any hints?

Hi. Try getting in touch with Formula Ford Australia ( https://www.formulaford.org.au/contact-us ). The kent engine has been the mainstay of this car since it started in the 60's. If someone there cant set you straight the next thing would be some of the small ford car clubs. Cheers MD

not local, but I'd reach out to Anthony Lawler Ford Escort Specialists in Qld, Taffs Auto Repairs in Adelaide, Mike at Yesterford in Melbourne. I'm sure one of them would be able to help
