Guides need to be honed or reamed after installation to have a proper fit.
The shrink or press fit will reduce the guide to valve stem clearance of a
"pre sized" guide and it needs to be corrected.

I would pull the final drive and check the torque on the pinion nut then change the seal.
The pinion nut can loosen and cause an oil leak, then destroy the ring and pinion.
