where to buy new valve seats??

ok 1st post here we go. so i work for ford and someones traded in a 01 lx with engine noise. i knew exactly what was going on because ive been trolling this site for a few weeks. eventually i talked the salesperson to give me the car free and clear. i ripped the motor apart and #2 and #4 pistons are beat up and valve seats dropped. the head is still in decent shape. i read somewhere on the site that ford sells new style valve seats, but when i look them up, the part #'s never changed and the intake seats are discontinued. the question i have is where do i find new style valve seats. ive looked for days online. any help would be appreciated. thanx in advance

DONT get them through Ford , take the head to a local machine shop and get them there , you wont be able to install the new seats anyway so let the machine shop do them
