Many of the Valve Spring Retainers listed on our site are the Super 7° design. Here are the matching locks for those retainers. We have several sizes and types available. Super 7° and standard 7° locks and retainers do not interchange. Be sure that the locks that you purchase are correct for your retainer design. Please review the specs to select the proper match for your valves, retainers, and locks. You will see some technical links at the bottom of the page to help you select the proper part for your application. If you have any questions, please contact us before ordering. We sell valve locks in sets of eight because many modern race engines use a combinations of valve stem sizes and some engine builders use different install heights on exhaust and intake valves. Therefore, you are purchasing 16 pieces or 8 pair. This will allow you to select the optimum locks for your engine application.
Here are the specs for these Valve Locks:
|Material||Machined Titanium Alloy|
|Valve Stem Size||7mm (.275”)|
|Lock type||Bead (Radius) Groove|
Consider the following benefits of titanium locks:
◊ Lighter Weight - save approximately 4-5 grams per pair
◊ Superior Valve Stem Fit - precise .0007" interference fit and titanium alloy’s high coefficient of friction result in NO relative motion- hence, no galling or wear of valve stem
◊ No Valve Tip Stress - special design “locks” the valve stem in the proper location – below the groove
◊ Longer Life - superior fit results in less wear and extended service life
◊ 100% CNC-Machined - unparalleled surface finish and tolerances
◊ Compatible with titanium and steel valves and retainers
