Sterling Valve specs.

I got a Sterling in a trade but it's missing some parts. The Sterling is a gen 1 or gen2 version.
The valve is missing the valve stem.
So I need to know how long a stock valve stem is from the cup seal to the end or how far the valve stem stick out the front of the valve.
Or does anyone have a extra one I can get from them.

Can anyone help me on this ?

Ken,
How soon you need the measurements?

I'm currently at school. If you're in no hurry, I can have mine sent to you for measurement when I run home in a few weeks.

It's been sitting here for some time so I don't think a few week would hurt.

Thanks

Maybe I can head up to the shop one weekend. I live about an hour away from Detroit.
That would allow you to get the measurements and whatever you may need.

Hey Ken, what did you find out was the thread size in the valve? I am getting ready to try a project and was just wondering.

Love the body you had in the BST too

Thanks in advance

Bart
