    Default Help needed

    Hi All,

    I bought a 851 from 1989, and I cannot find specific parts regarding the valves (see attached picture).
    It seems that it is a Kit engine. So that the dimensions of these specific parts are :

    - Total diameter : 8.50 mm
    - Diameter of the "wire" : 1.50 mm

    I need 16 parts (2parts/valve).
    If somebody can help me to find this, it would be much appreciated.

    Hi Christian,
    From the 1988 Kit parts catalog the half ring part number is 66910011b. One source could be: http://www.stein-dinse.biz/Complete-...ng::51553.html

    Hope you don't need to go here but.....

    Early on those were not available.....we made our own by cutting same diameter and bend with a dremel from quality spring material......actually worked better than the originals (the later, updated material was better/harder)

    Default Thanks for this information.

    Hello,

    Many thanks for this information. But, if you have these parts in the same dimension (8.50mm x 1.50mm), would you accept to sell me a few of them ?..
    Kind regards.

    Christian
