Yep, no problem and then pop it into the oven to drive the guides out.

I did the engine cases in mine worked well.

Use the hot dry feature for no streaking

I always thought "streaking" was only a concern when you had everything in the washing machine!

A GOOD friend will bail you out of jail, a TRUE friend is sitting on the bench next to you saying "Damn, that was fun!".

I think it may have been from detergent residue, but it turned my cases matte black. Spent two hours glass beading to get it off!

If you somehow leave a residual mess in he dishwasher toss the contents of a bottle of TANG breakfast drink in and run it. The best dishwasher cleaner out there.

I used 300 degrees for about a half hour. Once you have the head hot, you can use a little spot heat around the guide from a map torch to keep it hot. You may need to reheat in the oven before you get all the guides out. Put the head back in the oven before you install the new guides. Put the new guides in the freezer for a few hours and smear a little grease on them to install. I used a steel drift to drive them out but an aluminum one to install. You don't want to distort the new guide if possible. It's a good idea to have the new guides reamed to proper clearance on the valve stems when you send the head out to have the seats recut.
Also, make sure the part of the old guide in the port is completely free of carbon before you drive it out or it will destroy the interference fit between the guide and head.
