+1 for using a time-serts, a much better option IMO. I would think you of all people would hate to do something a second or third time. 


I have 3 kids,  what are you trying to say here?!?!

Gosh dang you guys and your Timesert recommendations after I have already committed to using a Helicoil

Really I have used 1000's of these without issues on low torque applications. Just make sure the STI tapped hole is clear of chips before installing.

Old oil pump shaft pressed out and thrown in the garbage.

New "upgraded" oil pump shaft pressed in. In the second image you can see why the new one is an upgrade as It gets rid of the undercut required to make the splines.

Not sure if this is a test to see if we are actually paying attention, or you really don't like following the rules.

I'm pretty sure that that is about as accurate as a tape measure.

I installed my 2 helicoils. The cam trays are no fun to install. I am using a folded over strip of tape to keep the lifters from falling out but it looks like I will need to resort to using magnets.

I have so much sweat

Assembly lube fixes the issue of them falling out.

More stripped threads happening on the exhaust cam studs

Im using a small in-lb beam torque wrench but am going to buy something more expensive just because this is getting ridiculous.
