    Having been rude, what actually is it? Nothing wrong with a big sidevalve.

    G'day JW,

    It's just a plaything I picked up a while ago, and yes, a little short.
    Its from a 1936 (ish) Chrysler. Just bought it on a whim, don't have a clue what I'm gonna do with it yet, probably just on-sell it.

    Nothing to see here..

    Actually you shouldn't be playing with the Chrysler/Dodge or whatever it is. You should be getting the Floride back on the road in time for the Rear Engine Workshop Day on the 2nd September. We could check up on extractor design on this day. Couple of us have them.

    Hmm, tempting as it may be, it unfortunately clashes with a work day. But bit by bit the Floride is getting the attention she has been lacking for the last 3 years, besides I have other distractions going on at the Renault workshops.

    ...and it's all your fault.

    Interesting Graham. I have in my possession, a workshop for a Plymouth/Dodge/DeSoto from exactly that time period. Mum and Dad had a '39 Plymouth from what I remember.

    hey HK Puggy - I managed to pick up a 10S head, twin throat weber and S inlet/exhaust manifolds to upgrade my 10 - I took the head to a local shop for 'evaluation' and they have come back to me saying they are having problems sourcing valves and guides - they are also having problems working out the difference between the 10 and 10S heads as well....all I have been able to tell them is that the S head has different porting and larger valves - that didn't help.

    I will have the 10 and all parts at the 10 workshop in Boonah at Sunroofs Toy Shed on Saturday 2nd, really looking forward to that!

    The 10S (Euro market 8S) motor has the same valves as a Renault 12, so no real mystery there - at least to Renault people :-). I'm guessing given they are such an old motor, and the Australian only market of the 10S, any tech details will be rare. They will have to look up Renault 8S and a 688-09 engine type in any documentation they are referencing (likely European data books).

    thanks Simon, had a chat with Sunroof about it this morning - the 10 is on the trailer and (almost) ready to go...roll on Satdee...

    My most recent valve guide work involved the cylinder head folk recommending sleeving them internally and reaming to suit the valve stem diameter in preference to replacing them, if that is any help. Seems to work perfectly well.

    Hi I agree with John. IMHO I think it is better to keep the original factory installed guides and re-line them with what we called in ZA
    K-liners. It is brass so could be a better or longer lasting guide. I have seen a badly sized or fitted guide come out of the casting causing a lot of damage.

    hey thanks John and Frans, that info is gold to me! been watching your track videos Frans - you really give those guys a run for their money...after reading stuff about the Alconis in SA it's obvious a well sorted 8 or 10 is quite a weapon!

    smee again - got a quote for 8 valves including collets + freight from Meca Parts, 228 Euros - must admit that surprised me a bit...

    could have sworn I posted elsewhere on my search for valves but it doesn't appear in search so it didn't go - I have been having a few problems with my interbet thingo...

    the Renault 12 Shop has sets of exhaust valves part number 7701458190 for 45 Euros - might start there. apparently the number for the intake valves is 7701458180

    won't do anything until I hear from aussiefroggers here

    cheers

    forgot to mention I saw inlet valves for 5.34 Euros each at Spareto - btw the head is a 10S with the bigger ports, I also have the manifolds and a 32DIR Weber
