When the blank housing comes out of casting, there is no hole for the inlet. At least not the last half inch (or it'* very rough). Eaton mills the opening, and it SHOULD line up with the bore that'* cast into the blank.

you can see where they missed with the boring to the LEFT, leaving a ridge on the left side. This is a major flow disruption.

The above two replies should tell the tale. Andrew was editing his reply above as I was typing the last one. Can you see the issue now?

I have the same exact thing on the 3 M90'* here.

Asked my machinist buddy and he said they use a reference point and go from there.

I smoothed and didn't find it hand fatiguing like you did. I probably spent 1.5-2.5 hours two nights in a row.

Bill, 75% of my 5th metacarpal (the bone between the wrist and the knuckle for the pinky) was completely obliterated in an accident. I lost 75% of the bone, and alot of the muscle and neve endings.

The bone is now comprised of a piece of the rim of my pelvis. And still retains much of it'* 'aftermarket' hardware. This was my RIGHT hand.

I've been working on both M90'* now for about 6 hours today.

I didn't know that.. ouch...

..I was surprised, you sounded as if this was hard work overall.

I didn't want to discourage others from trying. I felt it was reasonable.

Little known medical fact:

Your pinky provides 35% of your grip strength. This is what I was considering through 8 surgeries on my hand as I was facing the possibility of amputation.

I've been painting my kitchen during my 'hand breaks'. As a result, I've been doing Andrew'* porting on the dining room table, with a blue medical surgical drape over the tablecloth.

10 feet away from the wall I'm painting.

Every time you shake my hand, Paul, you grab a bit 'o my arse.

Should be working the inlet on the GenV today. We'll be checking the plug.
