I redid one of my Audi heads that had the guides with shoulders.
The replacement guides I got from TPC had no shoulders.  I just made
sure that when I replaced them I pressed them in the same distance as
the old ones.  Prior to pressing them in I had them in the freezer for a few
They seem to go in alot easier.

Hope this helps
