Stuck valve guide
« on: December 04, 2021, 06:54:21 PM »
Well I tried to get a valve guide out of the head, one came easily ish. The other wonít budge. The metal seems soft and somewhat brittle because it has crumbled where I was hitting it with the hammer and socket I was using. Iím trying to heat it and tap more but it doesnít want to go. Any tips?

The Lister CS heads have screwed in exhaust guides. Never seen that in an India head but anything is possible from India. Try a 6 point socket and an impact.

Got it out with more heat and force, no threads but it was  as a bugger!
