Default Valve guide install and removal tool

Valve guide drift, old guides and valves. (And legendary BFH, standard HD factory fix everything tool, 2LB) The drift is slightly smaller than the hole in the smaller exhaust guide and stepped up to slightly smaller than the part of the guide that fits in the head so it can knock the old guides out.


Wooden jig to hold head while working on it, changing guides etc. The valve stems and springs sit in the slot when you turn head over. Piece of wood at the end means the intake stub bears against it when knocking in the new guide and does not get banged up against hard objects.
