|I just bought these valves that were titled as 'NOS' from a Samba member. They look like China specials to me except for the used OEM intake valve with the pitting on the seating surface.
Are these useable? Stamping on the valves is barely legible. I can faintly make out 'S2546' on the 3 no name intakes and no stamping of any kind on any of the exhaust valves.
The 3 new intake valves have ground marks on the outer edge of the face what looks like they tried to clean up the casting.
The 4 exhaust valve faces are completely flat where OEM were cupped.
Officer: License and registration please.
Driver: What's the problem officer?
Officer: It indicates here you require glasses to operate a motor vehicle.
Driver: It's OK officer, I don't wear glasses..I have contacts.
Officer: I don't care WHO you know!!
