Thanks and yes I did. I tryed going with 3 thin coats of copper spray. Head and block were glass sanded after shaving. I'll find out in the morning and will retorq bolts a couple times. I didn't want to ultra copper because I thought it might bend it taking it back off + removing all of it off to put back on. Going to be trying a couple different heads. Thanks for all the input and replies I appreciate it.

Making a bunch of spindle barrels and wondering if anyone could measure the thickness of the bearings in the cheap 3 bolt front hubs as I'm using the same ones in the barrel. 1-3/8 outside 5/8 inside by ? Thick-? Thanks for any info. Don't get all my parts till next week and got some time on a Lathe for free this weekend.

Ok I'll try it out George . Thanks for the reply. What's the minimal spring gap before bind to shim it to? Can I just use a feeler gauge to measure this? Got some .058 shims and .085 shims that fit nice in pocket and still have room to retain spring still in recess.
