I have noticed that some guides that taper on ends to very thin wall thickness have a tendency to crack when using Kline ball broaches.   Never a perfect world in the engine business.


​I know this is a old post but I'm going to share my info on the guide liners, if the guides are thin on top where the seal goes you can put a locking collar on top of the guide while you broach it I broach the guide with a .001 over broach then use my sunnen guide hone to finish it. I have tried many ways to press in new guides and the best thing I have used on the guide is wd40 to get it to go in I know its thin but it will press great with it.
