valve guides need replaced...how much should it cost


Recommended Posts

its actually a fresh rebuild but they installed the older style valve guides....thanks for the replies

You won't get by for much less, if any less than a reconditioning cost. Reason is full disassembly is required. Valves need to be cleaned and reseated with the new guides in place. The valves won't sit in the exact same place with the new guides. Head needs to be checked for flatness because once tightned to the block and heated up, it may not be flat. That's the minimum needed.
