New Valve job

i need to get all new valves, pushrods, springs, rocker arms and lifters. any ideas on which parts i need to get for OEM or if i wanted to upgrade anything. i dont know antyhing about sizes expect for the rocker arms. and i know nothing about brands


thinking rocker arms stock are 1.5 or 1.6 ratio. i see alot of people going with 1.7's. now if i do that. what kind of pushrods do i need, do i need to make a change to lifters or springs for example??

from what i have gathered so far, it seems you just want to upgrade to a larger ratio for the rocker arms and everything else oem is good. is this correct?

and for what brands should i go with, or what shops? i know about tom morana 1.8's but i cant seem to find a store online.
