Your logic is confusing me. If you have a tool bit that will cut bearing material, why do you need to remove the weld with a die grinder? It should be much softer than the race.

Have you tried the...

Pull the spark plugs, see if there is water in the cylinders. Wait a minute, that engine is air cooled, so that won't work.

Can you crank it by hand? Are there any holes in the block? Does it have...

Since the race has shrunk a little bit, it won't be as tight in the bore as it was originally. Sooner or later, the race is going to start slipping/spinning in the bore and cutting will cease. Will...

And the tool is cutting the race? Weld that thing up again and save a bunch of time! Once it shrinks, easy peasy!

The heating and cooling is reversed for an outer race. Heat it hot, let it cool, and then knock it out.

That makes sense now.

1/24 x 25.4 = 1.058mm

So a 10mm x 1.0 thread was re-threaded to 3/8-24 UNF. Very clever. They are so close that the strength lost re-threading (cross-threading?) is...

Nice work. You should be warm and toasty this winter.

I've never heard of that before. What were the threads before and what was re-threaded? The head or the GP themselves.
