This may seem very unusual and possibly insane, but I have an idea for the valves: square shaped valves and square shaped valve chambers. I would think the more even surface area would help with air leaks, and the flat faces making sanding down the valves easier while preserving its shape more than if it was circular. I would even think a similarly efficient design could be accomplished with an octagon as well.
