    IF you have a points & condenser ignition, then YES you can do that and it's been done millions of times. Hook up the switch to the point side of the coil.

    About the only path is to machine out the iron sleeve and make an aluminum sleeve to replace it, and weld it in. That will probably ruin the cam bearing bore since it is in close proximity. So it...

    That is a cast-in-place iron sleeve, and I would consider that not repairable. The sprocket side sleeves in '84 - '89 evos are known to come loose, but I have never seen a pinion side sleeve come...

    Sounds like he may have been using the two chucks on the headstock to support a rifle barrel for chamber machining, etc.

    You tell a good story! And kudos for transporting an engine lathe in a...

    Yes, the front and rear rods have roller sets that are independent of each other; that must be, because each rod is accelerating at a different rate than its mate. The big ends are even moving in...
