WD11 my very first project

Postby matty » Tue Jun 17, 2014 2:49 am

I will hopefully post more as and when i get time but this is my first engine and i am a complete newbie to engines and mechanics
I have a few (lot) of questions and i hope someone can help me. So thanks in anticipation. Are the inlet and outlet valves bothe same dimensions and how do i measure them.
The exhaust valve is very badly pitted ,will it still be ok or should i get try and get a new one and if so do i need to get a pair. Where can i get them from in uk and what valves will fit if not wolsleys.
This is the number on the plate riveted to the engine. No 22581 its a 1.5 what year would this be.Sorry images are too large ill try again soon.
