Hi

we had the anual Gileraclub meeting this weekend.
While we are out for a littel tour, we meet a guy on a Yamaha who also owns a Nordie which he is rebuilding after a belt crash.
He used valves from VW and made them fit.

Somehow i think i could remember that someone here had done this to and the engine breaks down again.
But i cannot find anything.
Can someone of you give me a help?
Is that a fault in my memory (sorry i am getting older and older...) or am i just to stupid to search

thanks Joachim

Hi Joachim.
I know too well about the getting older, I also remember about fitting VW valves but think the rebuild was being done in Spain but was posted on here.

yes, i have seen that.
But i am more interested in the article itself.
Somehow i remember that after the rebuild with those car valves the engine broke down again. Whatever the reason was.
Maybe it is helpfull to give this informations to the guy who had just used VW valves for his Nordie.
I have now surfed all the articles in the Nordie and the Saturno section... nothing found. Somehow strange.

ciao Joachim
