I'm working on a 2N that had a stuck piston. Before buttoning it back up, I want to lap the valves. I am having problems getting them out. The guides will not budge. I should also mention that I first cleaned them up the best I could with carb cleaner and been spraying PB Blaster on them each day.
I tried modifying a screwdriver to pry them down (as seen on this site) but no movement. I have tried multiple valves. I can move the clips back and forth so I know they're not the problem. They appear to be the original two piece guides.
Today I compressed a spring and took out the retainer clip on the bottom (1 piece clip) and slid off the spring. I can not remove the valve itself since it's the older mushroom type. I tried to work around it with it as far up as possible and drive the guide down with a punch. No luck. Is my only choice to cut off the mushroom end, remove the valve and drive out the guide with something (socket maybe)? I was hoping to reuse them if possible.

Sounds like they are stuck tight and cutting off the head may be the most practical way to go . I probably have a couple sets of used mushroom stemmed valves that I will never use . I would be glad to send them to you . They are not worth trying to sell on ebay and I hate to throw them away .
