I have a new 383 with dart pro 1 alum heads.After 3 races I found the #5 intake valve retainer cracked and the tops broken off both keepers. I thought it was a faulty retainer and replaced the valve,retainer and keepers.Ran 1 race ,checked it ok ,after next race 1 of the keepers is broken again on the #5 intake valve.The top of the keeper is broken off and the retainer is ok.All other cyl look ok.Thanks

At full lift check your valve keeper/retainer to top of valve guide clearence. Sounds like they are hitting.
