Valve guides

Recommended Posts

Do the valve guides always have to be replaced with new ones when they are removed? According to the manual there are some o rings at the base of them that needs to be replaced on a rebuild. Tab on the rebuild is adding up quickly and I'd like to avoid the expense if it's not necessary. Thanks guys.

The only time I replace valve guides is with short ones for a big cam. Otherwise leave 'em alone.

Are you saying it's not even necessary to remove them to replace the o rings?
