I found these the other day if that would help. Make me an offer. They appear to be in good shape and don't see any cracks.

Started a separate thread specific to the valve stem seals as a possible solution.http://www.w-body.co...n-cup-solution/

Tinkering around with an idea now but Ive got the top up and the car in garage due to rain, does the "cup" need to even be in the header? Would a plastic cone shape work to act as the pin and then due to the shape, guide the top into place as its raised?

That's a great idea!
