Is somebody alread done this?
Please help me! Any sugestions?
I have to ask,after you got them out what were you going to do then?Do you have the equipment to finish the job,like calipers to put the new guides in at the correct heights,a reamer and hone to size the new guides after they are installed(do you know the correct clearences or how to determine that you have them).Did you know that a new valve job is required after guides are replaced also.
Take the head to a good shop and have the work done for you,or chances are they will be doing it anyway after you messed it up the first time.
I don't want to sound like an ******* here but they are not "bolt on and go type parts"Changing guides should be left to professionals,like boring a block.
