Valve Guide Installation

• Apply oil to the valve guide outer surface before installation.

• Heat the area around the valve guide hole to about 120 ~ 150 °C (248 ~ 302 °F).

• Drive the valve guide in from the top of the head using the valve guide arbor. The flange stops the guide from going in too far.

• Wait until the cylinder head cools down and then ream the valve guide with the valve guide reamer [A] even if the old guide is reused.

OTurn the reamer in a clockwise direction until the reamer turns freely in the guide. Never turn the reamer counterclockwise or it will be dulled. OOnce the guides are reamed they must be cleaned thoroughly.
