are these heads the same core and do all parts interchange?
i have been studying up flee-bay watching guides valves springs and retainers and keepers but the years the suplyrs say their products will fit is bafling me
i know stanles steel valves take heavyer springs and that posibly the 2000 426 came stock with steel valves but what do i really need to know before i order to redo a head?

Going by the part numbers and diagrams on the 1999 yz400f and 2000 yz426f. The valves/spring/retainers/buckets are all the same, the only real difference is the head core.

400 - https://www.thumpert...1999&model=6989
426 - https://www.thumpert...2000&model=6943
