Valve guid seals

Postby M&T82WING » Fri Dec 11, 2009 5:05 pm



Can the valve guid seals be changed when the heads are still on the engine? My Dad was mechanic for 38 years he did that with compress'd air in the spark plug hole and spring compressor. I'm just wondering if anybody made a tool for Goldwing engine's to speed up the job?

Same procedure. You can also use a bit of rope: stuff it in the sparkplug hole and manually crank the motor to bring the piston up to TDC (he has probably done this in the past too).

You can go to the autoparts store and get a compression tester, the hose that screws into the plug hole can be used to hook to compressor air.
Don't spook the road sheep.
