Valve Guide Woes

Hi,

Having replaced the valve guides on my NAD head, I now find that the valves don't sit flat in the seat. Is it possible to drive these in slightly out of square? Whats the best way to fit them without the use of a flypress? Any help/advice appreciated.

The seats should always be recut after replacing the guides to true them up.

I was hoping that wasn't necessary :( Looks like this isn't the sort of job you take on in your shed then so the professionals might have to get their cut.

Thanks for the response, Ian
