  • Valve guide removal tool!

    Ok, who has an extra valve guide removal tool?

    I went through all the drawers in my tool box and it appears mine has done a vanishing act!

    I did find the ring compression tool, the slimmed down tappet adjustment wrenches, and a couple other tools that I knew I had, but that got shifted around into the wrong drawers, but the valve guide tool is missing.

    I would like to use one that looks like a double question mark in the middle. I saw the one the vendors offer today, but I don't fancy smackin the head of a perfectly good valve to get the guide out.

    Little help friends, I will mail it back.

    I like the ones that fit under the valve head much better. Just be sure to use a 3/8" flat nose punch and keep it exactly in the center of the valve.

    I also own the curly one, but that one can't remove a really tight guide due to flex in the curves.

      I greatly admire your sincere honesty and humility in admitting that you are like just the rest of us, i.e., sometimes misplacing Model A items.

      When you find it, you will realize that all of our Model A lost items are always found in the "last" place we look.

      Reason for always finding it in the "last" place?

      After we find it ............... we always quit looking!

        You are smart to ask to borrow one. I have found that if I cannot find something, and then buy a replacement, the original shows up shortly thereafter, and then I have two to loose.

          I don't have one in my VFF tool arsenal rental cage. If I did it would be yours.

          So buy one for us to borrow

            I use straight stem valves, so if I have stubornd one just cut the head off and drive out guide.

              Every time I lose something anywhere, I ask my wife for help.

              She only wants a concise description, give her about (5) minutes and there it is.

              And, I'm not just saying this because it is Valentine's Day.
