I've heard some people have the oil inlets(if thats the right term) on the crank journals to help keep the rotating parts oiled. Is this something I should have the machine shop do while they have my parts? (Right now they are balancing the assembly)

Is this something I can do on my own with a dremel or a die grinder? If so, how would I do it?

Thanks guys,

Chris

Have the machine shop do it before balancing. They will chamfer the mains and rod bearing oil FEED holes, and then put a polish on it to ensure there are no burs.

Thanks, Kim. I called the machine shop and said he'd take a look at them, but said they come chamfered from the factory(?). He only wanted one rod bearing to balance the assembly, so he can't chamfer the rest of them, they're in my trunk. Is this going to be a problem?
