The Strociek bores measure out at 3/8ths and I don't want to have to bore them that far to suit other pistons. They are new, so at the moment, no problem.

Technically if I bore that far as well I will exceed the class limit.

The Axtell cylinders I have are defiantly 3/8 plus 30 so not ready to be bore to 60 yet.

Yes, took me a little time to sort out just what the seats were cut for. Exhaust was pretty easy at 1 3/4 but ut was hard to work out if they went with the stock 1 15/16ths for the Intake or if they went with an "R" valve.
But I've been onto my local Kibblewhite distributor and they have what I need in stock.
So far, so good.
I have some springs and top collars. keepers etc but haven't gone anywhere near working out what the cam needs to be yet.
So, spring poundage and shimming yet to be determined.
I don';t have any lower collars and might need to look for some of the Andrews lower ones.
Also going to have to check out who still makes custom push rods.

Do they come with shims as well ?

Different spring rates ?

I will be using their valves so I'll talk to them (if I can) about the spring kits.

Ric, Thanks, the data sheet is what I've been scratching around for.

And that price is better than what I just got from Serco.

I was thinking Titanium upper collars but probably don't really need them
