Angle plate

Post by Jorg50 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 5:47 am

Taking valve guides is always a problem in aluminium heads. I need to make an angle plate because of the angle the guides are in relation to the surface of the head. They are going to be press out in a hydraulic press. Probably somebody in here as done this and I do not want to reevent the wheel.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I use a hammer and a driver, to drive them out with the head setting on hardwood blocks , at zero degrees. I have a tilting plate with tee slots to hold the head for machining. But not enough clearance without adding blocks when driving them out. I made spacers for the guides when driving them in, so standout is correct. To ream, a cordless drill nice and slow.
My wheels don't slow me down
