I'm also putting a motor together and found I also need to install a few time-serts. any tips on make sure the hole stays straight while drilling?

Check check and double check! I drilled them by hand with a T handeled rachet,use the other studs as a guide,The aluminum is very soft and easy to do by hand,The heads are back on and all is torqued and well! If they are top studs turning the motor upside down with the top cover off help the chips fall out and not into the motor,,ask craig in idaho to send you his page on doing this,,its a great step by step how to!

Thanks Dave, Good Job! manual is a good idea, aluminum cuts like butter. I think i'll also make a guide.

word to the wise, retorque the heads before disassembly.

The starter motor shouldn't need time-serts, as nose-cones are available. If it did, I'm certain alignment isn't critical.

as I was walking up the torque is when I found minesad smiley it's a baddd feeling when you turn the wrench and the tension doesn't change. UPS should have the kit here tomorrow. new tool thumbs up

it gives me more time to figure out the exhaust and carb setups . i'm hoping to drive this convertible before it hits a 100 degrees here....
