TST, is a slap hammer the same thing as a slide hammer?

My dilemma is, since I’m not grinding the valve seats: do I use the old valves, which appear okay or install the new valves. I’m afraid the new valves and worn seats will not match as well as the old valves and therefore I’d be better off using the old valves. In either case i plan to lap the valves.

It would be interesting to know where I could buy a valve seat grinding tool that would allow me to grind the block in my garage. I thought I saw one once that used a pilot stem, which went into the valve guides and then allowed you to drop a sanding tool over the valve seats. Does anyone know where I can get one of those?

Neway valve seat cutter will do the job. Search this site on "Neway" to find details including which cutter size to use.
