Re: W5 Valve Springs


JP Pistons in Australia can make you new pistons and rings, they made the pistons in my roadster and their prices are very good.

Re: W5 Valve Springs

Mike, The outfit selling Durant/Continental Valves on Ebay is American Vintage Parts....I spoke with them this morning and they have their valvs springs in another building and will let me know if they have the springs....I see that they still have 4 intake/exhaust valves for our A-22s on ebay as well as 6 intake valves for several of our 6 cylinder models.
On your engine rebuild don't forget that JPpistons in Australia will have in stock or make you a modern cam ground 3 ring piston assembly, which would include piston, pin, and rings in whatever standard or oversize you may want, The turn around time is good and their prices are not that bad.
