COMPETITION VALVE KIT (350cc)
These valves are slimmer in design than the standard items and have hardened ends to remove the need for the standard valve caps. The reduced weight and reduced friction, coupled with the superior spring arrangement and alloy top collars allow the engine to rev more freely. The kit comprises of valves, springs, guides, collars and collets.
Suitable for all 350c Bullets from 1955.
|200130||COMPETITION VALVE/SPRING/COLLAR KIT, 350cc||£99.00|
COMPETITION VALVE KIT (EFI MODELS)
This new kit contains specially improved valves with a choice of standard or a larger 43.5mm inlet. The valves are specially profiled for better gas flow. They are pulsed plasma nitride treated and come complete with a superior design of double spring arrangement to allow higher revs, alloy top collars, bottom collars. Also included are valve guides, split collets and seals.
|90273||COMPETITION VALVE AND SPRING SET (EFI) This uses the standard 500 size inlet valve||£137.50|

COMPETITION VALVE KIT (500cc and 535cc)
This new kit contains specially improved pulsed plasma nitride treated valves with a slightly larger 1.875" inlet. The valves are specially profiled for better gasflow and have hardened ends to remove the need for the standard valve caps. They come complete with a superior design of spring arrangement, guides, alloy top collars, bottom colars and split collets.
Note: There is also a limited supply of this kit which utilises valves with slimmer stems which reduces weight and friction.

EFI PERFORMANCE VALVES (500cc & 535cc)
These English made valves feature an improved profile for better gas flow and are pulsed plasma nitride treated which results in less friction and less valve guide wear. They are a simple replacement for the standard valves.
|90227||VALVE, INLET. This is a 43.5mm inlet valve which is the standard size on the 535 Continental GT or can be fitted to tuned 500 heads.||£27.50|
OVERSIZE EXHAUST VALVE (500cc & 535cc)
A weakness of the 500cc Indian Bullet engine is the exhaust valve. The diameter of the valve head is often too small for the valve seat, this prevents the valve head from forming a fully gastight seal which can cause a burnt exhaust valve and seat. This exhaust valve is designed with an over-size head. The new valve matches the valve seat correctly, allowing an efficient gas seal. The valve features a slimmer profile, for improved gas flow (similar to our performance valves) and high quality materials. The valve is pulsed nitride treated to give the stem an extremely low co-efficient of friction (the stem is more slippery and so wears less rapidly).
|90053||VALVE, EXHAUST 43mm Special oversize and improved head (500cc + 535cc)||£26.40|
TITANIUM VALVE KIT (500cc & 535cc)
These titanium valves have been designed for competition use. The inlet has an improved profile and head diameter of 1.875" and weighs 52g (the original is 84g).

The kit is completed with copper beryllium valve seats, phosphor bronze valve guides, a superior design of spring arrangement, alloy top collars, bottom collars and split collets.

These use a premium grade light alloy for the bearing blocks, with the added advantage of being doweled for perfect alignment and machined for "O" rings to ensure maximum oil supply. The rocker arms are a slim design that reduces the reciprocating mass. This in turn reduces wear on the cam gear and tappets.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The rockers we sell are not the standard Samrat items but have been specially supplied to higher tolerances exclusively for Hitchcocks. Additionally each set is checked and finished in the UK to meet our stringent quality control. If purchasing these from your local dealer, you need to find out whether they have been obtained through Hitchcocks to ensure that they been subject to our quality checks and are not the standard Samrat items.

We have bitten the bullet on this one and invested heavily in re-introducing the spectacular “Bighead” fitted on the 500 Bullets from 1959—1963. This is an all English made product manufactured to a high quality using the original factory drawings. It is available in the standard bighead form or with the massive inlet port to suit the 1.5” Grand-Prix carburettor fitted on the Fury.
These heads have many design advantages over the conventional heads including semi downdraft carburettor, rockers running on fixed spindles, 80 degree valve angles, superior valve and spring design with large inlet valve which all help to give an instant improved performance gain. With its large fins and overall shape, it will enhance the look of the Bullet engine dramatically.
To convert the Indian made Bullets, you will need the standard bighead along with the fixing kit which comprises of everything needed to convert including valves, springs, rockers, covers, studs, gaskets, oil feed pipe, head steady and pushrods etc.
Please note: That the standard Indian tank will need some small modification to the underside to give the required clearance.
