I'm in the process of renovating my K100 engine and need the tool to fit new valve stem oil seals ( BMW 11 1 940). I can't find anywhere selling them after Googling for UK suppliers. Can anyone direct me towards a source or an alternative method?

I've always used a socket or a piece of tube of the correct diameter. Just had a look at my Haynes Manual and they show a socket in section 2.18. However AGA tools have a set for $990.00.

I used this tool set to do mine. When I was done I sold them for $10. I greased up the valve stem with assembly lube to help the seal slide down the shaft and lube the guide. Worked a treat.

That is fairly much what I use except that mine is a lot older and has a pressed metal case that weighs 2 ton Very Happy

Thanks for the advice guys.....I think I'll pass on the $990.00 AGA set Martin and have a look on fleabay for a cheapo set like Point.Seven.Five used, and I'll check out the socket method.

If you are a UK BMW Club member, we have the seal tool in the Tool Hire facility.

Thanks Mike......I have managed to fit the seals using a short section of tube. Fingers crossed that all is OK.
