    Can valve guides be changed on the head on the motor in the engine bay?

    Uh.....no. Valve guides must be pressed out and replaced by a machine shop.

    Valve seals on the otherhand can be replaced without pulling the heads. But, you'll need some special tools and a source of compressed air to do it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
