Title: EW guides
Post by: tck on 07 May 2019 at 06:33
Finally finally I have got a chance to look at the 26  EW. Years ago Eddie said 'look at your valve guides' but suffering from too many bikes the EW soldiered on with an occasional outing till it failed to get my wife up kop hill 2 years ago.
the guides are worn in fact it was the coke in the front  Inlet port that sapped the power completely! never seen anything like it. I can get new guides I suppose from the club but when it comes to recutting the seats do I send it away? or do it myself?  there used to be sources for individual grinding stones but now only expensive car sets and most of those are 45 degrees (I am not certain what the EW seat angle is -30?  I can turn up a suitable pilot to suit.

If someone could please tell me the valve seat angle for the EW 350 it would be a start, it looks like 30 degrees none of my books have it

The ones I bought for my A31 decades ago were 45 degree. Would think the 350 EW was the same.
