so i have to replace my valves in my 85 22r because something got in the and messed them all up. but i was thinking about going with some oversized valves. would i have to get and oversized cam also? or could i just get away with the os valves. or should i just stick with the stock valves?

IMO this is the best bang for the buck and is faster and essayer than dealing with a local machine shop engnbldr.com . they also have cams for a great price.
Check with your local shop and see what it would cost.
Be sure to look at your timing chain and make sure it is in good shape and was not the cause of the valve damage.
I just got a timing set from them that came with a new chain, tensioner and steel guides with a new timing cover, Oil pump and water pump for 140.00

The cam is optional if yours is OK then yes it can be reused.
To get over size valves it would need to go to the machine shop and get cleaned and checked the valve seats would need to be resized and re ground for the bigger valves and then it would need to be machined to a fresh flat surface to insure that it is flat for the new head gasket. You would also need a new set of valves and valve seals.
You can Probably get a brand new one in the box for less and get it faster than rebuilding yours, If the shops in your aria are as slow as the ones around here are

Hope this isnt too late...

But if you were going to do a valve job anyway on your head, than definatly +1 on Engnbldr oversized valves. And while your at it, get the cam from them too. You will like it.

Now 1.5mm oversized is not huge, just so you know. But it wont be a wasted effort.

For giggles, heres huge... My 20R head right before I sent it to the machine shop last thursday to put in new guides, seats, valves and stuff. With the Engnbldr stuff, you should not have a problem with valve interferance with the piston.
I will...
