9mm Valve guides for 1700 914

Post by subtaf » Thu Jan 10, 2013 11:55 am

Just wondering if anyone cam recommend where I can buy new 9mm valve guides (1700cc 914 heads). The ones in my heads are worn out and my new S/S valves have 8mm stems.

Cheers

Correction, I'm wanting to replace the old exhaust and intake guides in my 1700 914 heads and change to 8mm valve stems. I believe that 1700 914's have a 13mm OD exhaust guide and a 12mm OD intake guide. But I see parts places advertising 13.06, 13.26 and 15mm OD guides. I'm wondering which do I need to suit my new 8mm stem SS valves.

Found all I need at EMW website. Pelican parts had some too. But not as extensive range as EMW.
I Just need to work out what OD I need and length (61 or 56mm)?
