      Hrrmm, OK. Call it an optical delusion. Carb reamers, or as LKeithR said, maybe valve guide reamers? ISTR most of the classic V8's used 5/16 or 3/8 valve stems

        That depends on what you call a classic V8, Ford and Chevrolet used 11/32" - 0.3438"

          Chevy small block used 5/16 valve stems. (going by memory)
          Big block was ... bigger.

            I have bought long expanding reamers from the above people for SU carb throttle shafts.
