That's fine. The intakes hardly wear at all, when I pull them down I simply lap them a bit and throw them back together. The tappets or shims will stay the same. The exhausts however wear quite a bit, as they do they will close up clearances. If I pull head down I recut exhaust valves and seats. I tell the grinding guy not to cut stem tips, then instead of changing tappets or shims (I have one of each) I grind the valve tip to set up the clearance.
