About 38mm inside

50 mm outside.




Look like they might fit. Hopefully sorted now. My internal measure on exhaust as olive was so old it just disintegrated was 3.5cms.

I have genuine vauxhall olives and for the ohv engine they measure 48x35mm. The ohc olives are 51x39mm.

I also have a modern type of olive to the ohv engine. Some fiber/metal material. Might work better if mating flanges are rusty and worn.

Mine may be OHC ones, certainly I used a couple on an OHC engine a couple of years ago.
