Oil Changes to save the guides
Brother of the Benz,
As you have read or heard, the life of the valve guide and seal is good oil, clean oil.
My 1987 W124030 with 175,000 miles still has the original valve stem seals and valve guides.
Prudent 3500-4000 mile oil changes has proven to me to be effort and dollars well spent.
I change my oil from the top side using Donald's El Cheapo Oil Pump.
