Hi all , just starting on the engine rebuild for the project , and was cleaning up the valves and noticed there’s a slight amount of play between the valves and guides , just enough to notice it . Is this normal or should they be a snug fit ? If they need replacing is it a job you can do yourself ? 

Cheers Ian

Guides are pressed in, if you decide to replace them, I have a set of new guides, bought for my 200tdi rebuild but not required, engine machine shop said mine were hardly worn ofter 300,000 miles.

In the workshop manual it will have figures for valve to stem clearance, and maybe 'waggle' when fitted.

Look em up and give it a check :)
