Default Re: FH Valve Springs

Frank - when you use a larger diameter spring than stock, you will not be able to assemble the engine the "easy way" - by dropping the whole valve, guide, spring and keeper assembly in from the top. You'll have to "assemble the springs" inside the valley area - which isn't a lot of fun and requires a set of tools designed for this specific task. It is by far easier to use Ford's method - where all you need is a good flathead "valve bar" and you don't have to worry about dropping retainers and keepers down into the bowels of the engine.

My guilds will be similar but, made of aluminum, with 1/2" aluminum bronze stock, drilled and reamed, pressed into them. I could put the PC type seals, directly on the bronze stock if, you think it helps.

I'm also considering a pressed in guild, with a shoulder, since I have to use 1 3/4 aluminum stock, to start with.

Does anyone use pressed in guilds?



B&S, I just saw your post after posting. I guess the pressed in guilds would go along with my spring use. Unless there a reason not to do it, I'll go with it.
