The last picture shows why you can't remove the valve guide from the valley.

I made a guide puller from a HS 5/16-24 all thread rod, a couple of nuts and a socket that was just big enough to fit around the valve seat. Tightening the nuts pulls the guide out.

There is some interference in the fit, but it doesn't take much effort to get them to move. I thought about using a slide hammer, but I decided it would be better to avoid the impact and ease them out.

I forgot to show the "C" clip removal. I will go take a pic and post it.
