Valve Poll -- Something different
 
I wanted to post a valve poll. The valve question is driving me nutz, and it was a short journey to begin with!

Sorry if I missed a valve but these are the one's I am most familiar with. I'm trying to get an idea of the installed base vs issues. Don't know if this will answer that question, but it's the sharpest tool I got...

I could post 10 options on the poll.

*** There is a mistake in the numbers on the poll. "Chipsdad" voted in every category and borked things up a little. Subtract "1" from any number you are interested in.

Valves
 
I installed a set of valves and seats from San Jose BMW that only lasted 20,000 miles. I do not know what brand they were.

Curious, how long ago was the Valve job done?

What part didn't last?

Bump for the Valve thread.

R80G/S- Swiss Intervalves, 20,000 or more miles ago, no problems yet.

R80RT 1990, R100R heads, 336 cam, 9.5 pistons. Intervalves for more than 40000 miles, no problem.

These Swiss valves look to be the shizzle!

Both, the seat was hammered and the valve keeper groves were very worn and the face of the valve.

I think the keeper thing is a common story, had not heard the seats being hammered though unless the keeper grovves being worn facilitates that.
