Machining the Gasket Split Surface


Now that we've gotten accurate mounting features and a matching fixture plate we can start machining the rest of the part.


These operations are relatively simple, some facing, drilling and a bit of spot-facing. I'll be machining the following features:
  • face the main gasket surface

  • drill/main bearing stud holes

  • drill/tap crankcase attachment bolt holes
  • drill cylinder head oil drain holes
  • spotface/drill oil passage in filter area

That's all I have for now. I hope everybody has a fun 4th of July holiday. Until next time.
