SE-1722 valve guide remover. All guides must be driven from
the combustion chamber side through the top of the head as
shown in Figure 107.
Support blocks used for removing valve
guides should be 9" long x 3-5/8" high x 1-
5/8" thick rectangular hardwood blocks.
These blocks should not be used for
installation of valve guides.

the wood support blocks positioned in the press. Install the
valve guides from the top side of the cylinder head using SE-

install both valve guides. This can be accomplished by
adjusting the installer screw in the body to a depth that is
equivalent to the specified height that guides are to be
installed above the head. Figure 109 illustrates the method to
be used when adjusting the installer for specified guide height.
