Hi Mike,

The valves were cleaned up using a wire brush in drill press before starting all the measuring process. I measured the valve to piston clearance firstly using the same solder wire (1.6mm). There were no indents on the wire which means I at least 1.6mm gap. I then measured using a blob of bluetac and found the exhaust at around 3.5mm and the inlet >4mm. I'm not sure how strictly accurate the bluetac technique is but even if the error is significant, there seems to be plenty of room.

No machining required...happy days!!

You were squirreling away some nice parts for this one, weren't you? If the inside is like the outside, and the rest of the bike like this it should run like a champ. MikeV

It's been a stressful time over the last couple of years while I've been accumulating parts. I break into a cold sweat every time my wife goes anywhere near my credit card statements. I have to carefully and discreetly file them away somewhere before they can be screened. Talk about living on the edge...
