I'm not Eric but I've interchanged them with no problem You do have to step the the output side of the solenoid from a 4mm to 3 mm because the kerostart input at the motor is 3mm. Step it down as close to the solenoid as u can. I would also make sure to relabel the solenoid so as not to confuse them when hooking them up to the ECU. Don't ask how I learned that

Good luck and enjoy your Cheeta, mine has been nothing but a pleasure.

David:
Valves ordered were the valves shipped. Yes, as my dear friend Zonker said, you can use the F valve for the K valve. Label to keep yourself out of difficulty. Second, carefully remove the 3mm FESTO from the suspect defect K valve replacing the out (exit) 4mm FESTO on the F valve. CAUTION. . .if you over tighten, the threaded body may or can break off. Also, check for the washer for each FESTO removed and re installed.
