    Hey everyone,

    Got a little project going on and am in need of someone with a junk/tore down for repair Kawi FC290V through FC540V engine.

    If at all possible I need a outside diameter measurement (micrometer/dial caliper) on the intake valve guide under the valve spring.

    Kawi tech support couldn't tell me anything.....

    Thanks

    All Ihave found so far is part #'s with no specs although the part #'s did have a four digit notation on them, ie: 49002-2076 and 49002a-2101. Does that mean anything to ya my freind ?

    All I have at home is an FB460V and a FH series. Both are intact and runnable. I'll check the shop in the morning as, IIRC, there is a Kawi torn down there.

    Have you found the diameter yet? Got me curious so I pulled out the service manual and all it lists is the inside diameter, no outside.

    Naaa mowerman,
    I got the inside from the manual which is the right size just need the O.D. to cinch it. I hate to order one in @ around 25 bux to find it non usable.

    Thanks for looking !
