yup no different than a crankshaft pilot bearing in a manual trans car (actually they are very similar)

it'* just finding the right "adaptors" to keep from damaging the bearing face and keep the force on the bearing shell.

you dont need special toolds for alot of this stuff guys...just a little redneck engine-uity

With the exception of using a press... that'* basically how I did the bearings. You find the socket or tools that fit the application properly.

i do have to say that tilt table is very handy...i got it so i could use my clausing to do guid/seat work on our heads and it sure has gotten alot of use, when porting the heads i put them on it so i can adjust the angle, etc i'm glad i bought the one with the worm gear for adjusting i woulda used my clausing to press them in but i was lazy heheh

yup before they ever put them on their site... pos...rewelded 2 cracks (why we got it fer free) otherwise we would've ported the OE front for the meantime

we have two sets of 1 3/4 primary SBC long tube headers we will be using to make our own "bundle of snakes" equal length primary headers which will be the blueprint for when we make em from stainless for the turbo'*
