    No they are usually mached for the grooves in the valve stems that they are design to go with but many companies make the ones you need for your stems. Shoot a couple across the shop huh?

    Stock valves and retainers call for a 7* lock. Im pretty sure COMP Cams part number is 623-16(hardened steel), which is a stock 7* lock and will work fine.

    And Edit: A 7* lock is a 7* lock. If its made for a stock diameter valve stem, it will work fine.
