Fitted valve guides, spring seats are now a little large over the guide, do i need to buy the smaller holed seats, or not?? ,RGM state they are interchangeable, the plot thickens !

 hello you should of check the condition of the valve seats before doing any further work  has you need to recut the valve seat after fitting new valve guides  I only fit the bronze type of valve guides   and you can get valve refaced  to if you know what you're doing you can do this job on your own like I do  as I have some good tooling like a 10" swing over bed Atlas Metal Lathe  and a Smart & brown Milling machine  and make all sorts on this tooling    do have fun  yours anna j
