Light Press Fit at 70 degrees

You can hone tappets for oversize lifters and get the perfect fit with easy movement and no end play, but if the tappet's guides are too tight in the case . . . it can pinch the tappet in the bore - and gall the surface.  You want a nice, easy press fit.  You shouldn't have to drive the guide into the cases too much.
