I rebuilt the engine on my Devon pickup last year. I asked this question at the engine shop who carried out some work for me. The guy disappeared and came back with a handful of stem seals from an A-series ( he said) which he gave me. he also showed me an a-series valve guide so I could measure the end.I bought bronze valve guides from the club spares scheme and had to turn down the end a bit to accept the seals on my lathe. I’ve done nearly 3000 miles yet and haven’t had to top up the oil yet and the  valves haven’t seized , so I’m very pleased.
