    A manual machine tool? I think you'll be fine with either. Just go with the cheapest. If you are worried abut scratches then a person could always ask for the machine to be stretch-wrapped ahead...

    I would try for some sort of a parts manual. Armed with some sort of a part number then you can probably do a lot better crossing over.

    You'd do best to grind such material. Or grind thru the case with a dremel and then mill it.

    Possible its valve guide, the exhaust valves usually don't directly contribute but positive pressure can get pushed thru the oil side of the system and thru the PCV ventilation.

    Drill a pilot hole with a magnet drill?

    Or punch a clearance slug with a 60+ ton ironworker?

    I think Tennsmith could be used if oiling and such was regularly attended to.

    Like light swab on the edges every couple of cycles, oil the eccentrics & pivot on the finger brake. Counteractive to...
