The 2000 set will fit yours, but you have to use the 2000 springs, too. What's in the "set", and who makes it?

That will work well in your head. The 2000 used stainless valves, which is why it's VERY important to use the 2000 springs. The OEM SS valves will last at least as long and save a bunch of money on the rebuild.

Wow, that's a pretty good deal. I wonder if my guy at the dealer could even beat that. I'm saving that link for when it's time. :excuseme:

You might want to double check what you can get those parts for from the TT store or other e-Bay sellers for induhvidual parts...I rounded all that up for about a buck eighty including shipping by doing a bit of careful shopping...

I would run the complete Kibblewhite valves and spring kit over OEM.

would 426 valve kits such as this work in a 400?

Check the parts fiche. As far as I know, the 2000 426 used the same valves, etc. as the '99 400 did.
