I have a quantity of inlet and exhaust valves. Many of which are not identified.
If you have a sample to work from I might be able to supply what you need.

Hi Marcel,

I'm afraid your posting of those valve things really upset me, as it made me realise the shear pergatory having to be endured by most of my fellow Club Members condemed as they are to a life of grinding in valves, adjusting tappets, and pinging split collets across the workshop never to be seen again.

So as its Christmas, I thought I'd give you all a treat by showing you a picture of an engine which requires no maintenance at all - except for tipping oil into it two or three times a day.

A Merry Christmas to you all!

Just lovely; such a shame that the sleeve valve did not live on longer in road vehicles. So much less maintenance and adjustment to do.

They lasted longer in piston aero engines, I don't know why, do you? You don't happen to have a Bristol Centaurus as well perhaps?

Regards, and Happy 2020 to all when it arrives. Will we still be driving our old petrol fueled classics in 2029? Or will we have converted them all to run on hydrogen?
