Trying to track done an old mod motor valve with a 7mm stem.
Only need one, does not need to be in serviceable condition

Edit. To possibly save time, does any one know if the triple grooves on the mod motor are the same is the triple grooves on the AU 6cyl valves.

So long as it has a 7mm stem diameter.

By the looks of it it needs to be an intake valve from either a 2 valve or a 4 valve motor

I hope it isn't costing much.

I've ordered a new BA XR8 intake valve from ford, Trade price = less then $30.
But I'd still like to see more then one and if one is from the states that is even better.

I really hope this idea proves to be correct as it will open A LOT of valve/retainer/valve lock/valve spring options for the 6Cyl engine.

$350 cause it's coming with a ZENOAH G290RC engine :twisted:

The new one turned up today.
All looking good.

The triple groove on the mod valve is the same as the 7mm stem in the AU 6cyl.
Still want to check it against a US valve.


But this now means I don't need to send a sample valves to manley to get the right grooves cut and manley do a machined steel replacement valve lock for the mod motor that I can now use in the AU 6cyl motor.
Not to mention a number of steel and titainium spring retainers, which then opens up all sort of options for valve springs.



I know it's not V8 stuff,

Meh the boosted people that don't like me are only the ones who love CVE. No big loss.

Also made another order today. A set of cranecams single groove locks to suit the 7mm stem and ford retainer. Just need to work out where the lock bead is placed relative to the stock locks.
Then I can spec out a groove placement on some custom valves.
If it all fits like I think it will, it will give us access to extreme duty valves with proper single groove locks in steel or titanium and some good retainers again in steel or titanium with any number of conventional single and duel springs along with a few behive/conical springs.


Finally we will have some decent after market support for these pre BA engines
