    Hi, I need to know all the dimensions of the valve guides and valves for the 45" 101 engine.  Have just received a new pair of cylinders from Greg Hutchinson and now understand that it is not just a simple matter of bolting them straight on.

    Section 30 in the R&O has instruction and drawings of the valves, guides, seats and springs.

    Hi Mike, check size of the holes, the guides MAY need to be a couple of thou oversize from original. Looking for around 0.0015" interference fit off the top of my head, check that too.

    I don't have actual measures, sorry. It was a long time ago I fettled with 37ci valves, but isn't they same as 741 valves?  In that case they are easy to obtain even NOS and cheap. The guides in some cases has to be custom fit to the hole size as Tim suggests. Be sure they are cast iron, brass guides or -sleeves doesn't seem to work well.
