Valve Guide Replacement

At Statfold Engineering Ltd we can offer a high standard of workmanship, when it comes to valve guide replacement. Each inlet and exhaust valve there is a valve guide fitted into the cylinder head. The valve guide locates the valve to the valve seat so it creates suitable contact between the valve and valve seat. Guides also serve to conduct heat away from the exhaust valve to the cylinder head.

If an engine suffers a disastrous failure or cam belt failure, the valve guides can crack due to the valves bending. If this is the case at Statfold engineering, we can remove the broken valve guides and change them with new guides.


Valve Seat Replacement

At Statfold engineering LTD we can offer a high standard of workmanship, when it comes to Valve Seat Replacement. The valve seat is the surface that the intake and exhaust valves sit on when the valves are closed. The valve seat is a vital part of the combustion procedure, if the valve is not seating properly it can produce combustion gasses to leak so reducing compression.

Over time a valve seat can be worn which can reduce its compression. If it is imposable to resurface the seat due to the excessive wear Statfold engineering ltd can remove and fit a new valve seat.

Valve seats are an important part of altering engines to run on unleaded fuel. When doing a conversion, you should change the exhaust seats with a harder wearing material due to the increase of temperature during the combustion procedure.
