Re: Spare keeper locks?

Thanks Bray, ended up finding a part number. Guess they used the same keeper for many generations and many manufacturers. P/n 11341461405. Will be putting an order in shortly

Re: Spare keeper locks?

Guess no ones upgraded valves lately... any one know a part number at least? Searched on realoem but they don’t show them.

Spare keeper locks?

Does anyone have a spare keeper lock they'd be willing to donate/sell to me? was getting everything cleaned up for reassembly on my S52 head and one seems to have gone missing.

Thanks!

good luck finding one for a decent price. People are asking stupid money for the Getrag 420's lately, especially true manuals (not SMG's)
