It got to be too much of a hassle, sourcing some parts such as drill guide bushings, and making others. Also, even with a very detailed 2-page instruction sheet, most people didn't have the common sense to use the kit. I finally just gave up.

Thanks Jerry/Hotrod-Lincoln & Lugnutz - regarding making and showing us Jerry's beautiful tool-set and the excellent photos/installation instructions.

I'd readily buy a set to impress my friends (and, to impress future stovebolters who are working on real "stovebolt six" engines).

fred c You don't have to use a sledge hammer on your HB,a 3lb. hammer with an oaken 2x2 should do it. Have a helper keep the crank pried forward as you drive it on,or wedge a block of wood back at your pressure plate. I use the 2x2 so it doesn't bruise-up your balancer. As a youth I did bruise some of those,sitting on no. 1 cylinder using a large hammer !!

Thanks for all the info. I have been out of town for a couple of days and I'll be gone again unit the middle of next week. When I get back I'm going to give it a try.

just very confused Nothing wrong with having the HB secured it's just work. Most of them have stayed on just press fit since 37.
