    Question VF3 V-Force 3 III Stuffer [Differences] Inquiry...

    Been talking to Fernando and he has an inquiry.

    There has been some instances where reed stuffers have been warping and/or distorting.

    I personally don't have that problem. But one thing he brought up is that mine are [grey] and the newer ones are [white].

    Maybe thats the difference. Possibly different material and thicknesses. ? .....dunno......

    Just tossing this around. Here is a picture of my VF3's. These are one ofthe original sets out there from when they were first sold.

    Also ignore the paper gasket. I use the 03 EFI gaskets now.

    VF3 owners, feel free to chime in please.

    Mine are about 3 months old. They are white. I did not modify mine, I just put them in. I may have 4 ~ 6 hours on them. We'll see how it goes.

    Mine are unmodified also. I never grinded them to open them up more.

    Mine are the white ones and I tried to match them. I was able to match them but i dropped one off the table and into the chair next to me. It broke from that short fall. I then decided screw it, if these things break that easy they don't belong in my motor.

    Billy,

    I think you and I got some of the "first generation" stuffers. Mine are over 100 hours old, and I just took them out last weekend. They are perfect, no warpage.
