There were several various flavors of SVS Valve Refacers over the past 30 some years. It can be a little difficult to identify which model you have. This page will help you to determine exactly which model you have.
By far, the best way to determine which model of Valve Refacer you have is to give your serial number to the Kwik-Way Representative when you call in. The Serial number is located above the 15-degree mark on the angle gauge of all but the very oldest valve refacers. For most of them, there will be a letter D or S after the first letters of SVS, but some of the really old units might have a number like "KK 234". Regardless, if you give the entire set of letters and numbers to a Kwik-Way Representative, they will be able to ensure that you are getting the correct parts or consumables for your particular model of Valve Refacer.
