Manley makes the 2.0 valves in stock and over size. Or at least they use to.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Lots of places will make custom valves without breaking the bank...
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.
