valve guide tool?
Anybody know where I can find a tool for reducing the height of a valve guide?
At max lift my valve spring retainer is contacting my valve stem seals. I talked to Crane about it and they said Manley makes a tool you can use to shorten the height of the valve guide. They said it was something you use at home with a drill. I need my valve guides to be about .050" shorter.
I talked to Manley and they say they don't make it anymore.
Crane only makes one valve lock for this retainer so I can't just get a 0.050" higher valve lock.
Seems like reducing the height of the valve guide is the easiest answer. I was hoping to get a tool and avoid going to the machine shop.
