Hello Dave,

You quickly run out of space with these small valve cages. It may be possible to machine a hex or two flats on the valve guide stem. I just used an expanding tool inside the bore.

My valve cages were not a tight fit in the cylinder heads. I used high temperature epoxy (JB Weld) to 'grout' the cages into the heads.

It is the journey that matters, not the destination
