Dragonfly tappett guide installation
« on: 16 Oct 2019 at 21:05 »
I have reconditioned cylinders and new tappett guides, but I need to install the guides into the cylinders.
I was imagining doing this like installing valve guides, heating up the cylinder in the oven and cooling the guides and carefully pressing them in.
Sound correct?
Or what's the acceptable procedure?
thank you,
kev
