    Looking at the notes that came with the MSD distributor they say you can use a steel gear on a billet steel cam, so may look into that for the next time.

    New honing tool arrived.

    Looks like the trick with the brass insert worked. All honed. Wasn't sure wether to add oil or not so didn't in the end. The stones wore down fairly quickly but I achieved the end result I needed.

    The hub was heated up with a heat gun for a couple of minutes then it slipped on the crank snout with out to much effort. Once cold the fit was what I would expect. Damper bolt fitted and torqued to 90ft/lbs.

    Damper installed, 6 bolts torqued to 16ft/lbs. Bolts use a T40 Torq bit. Installed timing pointer.
    There are three bolts for the crank pulley. My old pulley set had four holes, so now have to re-drill the pulley!

    Good to know the brass behaved itself.

    Re-drilled the crank pulley and fitted.


    Then got out the bead roller. Just as well I didn't start straight on the seat panels as the roller needed a lot of tweaking before the beads were anywhere near even and the ally not getting chewed up.


    Decided on a 1/2" bead for the seats and door panels.


    First trials! This will defo need two people to do, one to turn the rollers and me to feed the work.
    Finally got the bead even.
    Just got to find the courage to put a real panel in there now!

    Good luck with that. Always looks so easy when someone who knows what they are doing shows you but as an amateur, it just seems like sorcery.

    How do you know I don't know what I'm doing?

    The short bead


    Any chance of fabricating an end plate to fit a starter motor or similar that could turn the rollers for you?
