    Need help identifying valves

    I bought a 2010 RXT with a thrown Rod. The motor was just rebuild and done very wrong. If I was to guess two of the rod caps was switched. I bought it from someone that was flipping it so can't ask what the original owner did. Anyway the head looks newer than it should be and the vavles have No marks on them. Does anybody know who's doing vavles with no markings? Thanks

    The connecting rods are fracture cap, which means you cant mix and match the rods and the caps. As for the valves, are they stainless steel? are the keepers the oem triple groove, or are they the single locking style. Maybe some pics?

    I know the rods are fracture caps. i think they mixed two of them up. On the two rods that was still attached to the crank. One of them the cap did not line up with the rod and the bearings was shot on that rod. I would say the motor only ran for a few minutes looking at the head.
    the keepers are OEM triple groove. I'm thinking maybe SBT valves?

    Run em... they will be fine, they aren't the old OEM ones that break, they appear to be decent aftermarket, they aren't rusty, so let it rip.
