Well, i would almost say your correct ?..but nope...your wrong !..lol. i thought the very same thing !. i've been doing this 29 yrs bro, and my first thought was some dummy installed the valve guide in upside down ?, but then i looked at the other end under the valve lip, and sure enough, it was tapered as well !!. i have no freaking idea what is going on with this valve guide ?..but what i do know is ?..ITS NOT RIGHT !..LOL. i got another head off a trx125 ( same head/rockers ), got it all together late last night, got the china carb back on, discovered the starter solenoid is bad, got to locate one of those, and one of the fuel nipples was snapped off, still on the fuel tank line ?!..grr..THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T BUY/INSTALL CHINA CRAP !!. needless to say..i did get it all back together and running, but it wont run right with this china carb. started on putting the engine back together around 8:30pm last night, quit around 4:00am this morning.
