    I've got an interesting question for you.The guy I sub uses E-60's.He said when he replaces coils he has to tap them on with a hammer,so the last time he had to change one he took the valve out and took 15 thousands off of it in the lathe.He then slid the coil over it,he said it was a good fit,no excessive slop,but now it would'nt work.He has since bought a new valve,tapped the coil on and it works.I don't know about the E-60's but I replaced the A coil on my E-57 and it slides on and off with no problem.

    Which valve specifically is he talking about? Usually it's the C valve that you can't get the coils off of due to the stem swelling from excess pressure when an obstacle is struck with the blade... the pressure is supposed to be relieved through the cross over but a hard enough hit, or enough times will also swell the C valve stem...I've had to twist them off with a big set of channel locks before they were swelled so bad..

    If it all the valves, then I'd say it'd have to be the supplier... many outfits out there making generic valves and coils for the Meyer stuff... some fit good, others not so good. Maybe wherever there coming from has a lot of variation in their tolerances.

    hmmm I don't know which valve it is,I'll ask him.Maybe he's been tapping coils over a swelled valve?

    He definitely could be.....it's only the C valves that swell..although a lot of times you can't get the coils off the other valves either, but that's usually due to corrosion build up under the coil.
