    On the Yamaha shims, they were reversible, so the worn area could be installed facing the shim cup, and the best side to the cam. Are the Suzuki shims reversible?

    It's been a few years since I messed with shim type overhead valves, and then it was on Yamaha's. Pretty robust system. I would think as long as you were in spec (erroring on the loose side if close)...

    Your spindle might already have a vfd for speed control, and positioning. Look in the control cabinet to verify. If your lathe does have a vfd that cannot be run on single phase, you will need a rpc,...

    If you do need to ream, carbide is the only way to go, very forgiving. Hss and cobalt are more likely to sieze after very little use. We have done thousands of reamed holes in Ti castings, and only...

    Diamond wheels and boring head still available.

    For those that wonder why would I want to run a boring head in reverse? To machine a post or spotface w/o a cnc or rotab. :)

    I think a Unipunch frame could be set up to do the job, with an arbor press, depending on the cap height. The example below would work with the lower die holder modified (shortened, and a sleeve...

    A polyurethane stripper on the punch would be a big help and easy. As little tonnage as this should punch, the above die assembly could be run in a hand powered arbor press for an extra margin of...

    Is the crack in such a place that could be repaired by pressing on a metal sleeve? I have done this in the past on plastic fittings with tapered female theads. A good sealant like 3m 5200 and a...

    Jog my memory.....
    Is this the model with the tape drive? I had one about 20 years ago. It did decent work, and was easy to program. It also used universal tooling. The tape drive was a pain.

    Should work, if you can keep the pin cool like hm said. Perhaps even water cooling the copper pin. A pair of holes from the back (with fittings for your inlet and return lines) intersecting to one...

    What is the pump used for? Does it encounter any stall loads like a press?
