Works much like a crowbar to pry the valve guide down against the valve spring - thereby gaining access to the valve guide retainer. Works on ALL flathead Ford engines - 4, 6, and 8 cylinders. Model T, A, B and V8 1932-53.

This removal tool is heavy duty, After pulling the valve train out of two flat heads, one of which was seized, this tool is still going and shows no sign of wear. Highly recommended.

can this tool be used to re assemble the valvees


March 30, 2015
Yes, the forks end should be used high on the valve spring, with the fork end down.

Part number 56082250 is basically like a crowbar for removal of the flathead Ford valve guides and will not work for reassembly of the valve train.

1932-53 Flathead Ford Valve Guide Seals
(Part #91015317)

Flathead Ford Heat Treated Valve Guides
(Part #91015315)

The Flathead was designed to run on fuel with high levels of lead, but even with leaded fuel, the stock valves will eventually hammer the seats out, which will close up the valve lash and leave your valves hanging open...that is if you don't seize a valve to the guides first!

Remember what year your engine was built and how fatigued the valve train components are. Henry may have built them right with the technology he had available then, but this is now and we have the modern components you need.

These Flathead Ford valve guides are heat treated to be compatible with today's low-lead fuels. Fits 1932-53 engines. If using in a 1932-48 engine, you will have to use 1949-53 style retainers, keepers and valves.
