Spinning down cast-iron 80" valve guides for Ricky's heads. I like to buy them oversize, then cut the diameter to the proper press fit I need.
I'm fortunate to have some talented individuals around me to achieve excellent results. But, I feel this work benefits us both - two-fold. These guys have furthered their resumes to include repair and reconditioning of a lost art, which slips away a bit - day by day - as we lose the men who serviced these engines. The old-timer H-D mechanics who proudly repaired and serviced the brand. Just trying my best to keep it alive - so these old marks keep burnin' down the road - rackin' up carefree miles . . .
