JD Cylinders M 004

Making a valve guide driver..We don’t have one for JD exhausts..This is for installation (from the bottom)..Old guides are driven out with a 3/8″ rod from the top..With new guides we can cut the valve seats, then install the valves..

Resharpen the tool bit…And cool it off with a wet rag..No coolant setup on this poor little lathe…So, stop every few cuts and cool things down…Hot parts don’t cut well..
