  • Valve seat Threads stripped

    Ok I've read about 14 bazillion posts about stripped out valve seats, and everyone I've read has been about the wrenching area being stripped, for example the hex or square,,,,that IS NOT what is stripped on mine. I was tightening the new valve seat and I over tightened and stripped the threads. I haven't been able to find any info on a puller, or any other method of removal. maybe its because I'm so angry at myself for screwing it up. I heard someone at work mention trying a large easy-out. Just curious if anyone has tried that before.

    Hopefully someone here can help me out. Thanks
