Measuring Valve-to-Guide Clearance (Wobble
method) Inspection
If a small bore gauge is not available, inspect the valve
guide wear by measuring the valve to valve guide clearance
with the wobble method, as indicated below.
Insert a new valve [A] into the guide [B] and set a dial
gauge against the stem perpendicular to it as close as
possible to the cylinder head mating surface.
Move the stem back and forth [C] to measure valve/valve
guide clearance.
Repeat the measurement in a direction at a right angle to
the first.
If the reading exceeds the service limit, replace the guide.
The reading is not actual valve/valve guide clearance
because the measuring point is above the guide.
