OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Valve Guide, 9 x 14 x 61mm (.3546 x .5540 x 2.400"), Silicon Bronze, 14mm OD 1600cc FI Head, EACH
Valve Guide, 9 x 14 x 61mm (.3546 x .5540 x 2.400"), Silicon Bronze, 14mm OD 1600cc FI Head, EACH


 
Valve Guide, 9 x 14 x 61mm (.3546 x .5540 x 2.400"), Silicon Bronze, 14mm OD 1600cc FI Head, EACH are strong and durable, lasting over 10x longer than cast iron guides. These also reduce friction and ensure oil retention. Micro finished and .0005" tolerance. Available in Standard and Over Sized versions. Over Size refers to how much bigger the OUTSIDE of the guide is, to fit into holes in the head that are wallowed out from guide removal and installation, in order to rebuild heads to stock or better than stock condition. We carry more over sized guides than most part stores, which can save you hundreds of dollars by being able to rebuild heads instead of replacing them, if they are even available at all!

We STRONGLY recommend that you measure your valve guides YOURSELF, do not trust what any catalog says you "should have". The reason for this is our cars are so old, that heads could have been changed (and often have been). Also, valve guides have often been replaced at some time in the past.

Our experience has been if you try to buy what you "should" have, you'll wind up with the wrong valve guides about 1/2 the time!

So if you take the time to measure your valve stems for the guide ID, and measure the valve guide OD, and lastly the valve guide length, you'll get exactly what you need.

Furthermore, you may also find that that you have valve guide length options, moving to a longer or shorter one based on your needs.

Due to customers improperly measuring their valve guides and returning products not marked, or mis-marked (switching bags without paying attention to the error), or returning items without a note or packaging at all, WE NO LONGER ALLOW RETURNS ON VALVE GUIDES UNLESS DUE TO OUR ERROR! We cannot emphasize how important it is for you to measure your valve guide needs with a micrometer, and NOT calipers nor a plastic "tool" that was given away as a gift at a trade show. Every thousandth of an inch matters a lot, so make sure you get the right parts!
