I wonder if there is anyone close to Southampton, who might be able to help with milling SOHC Honda cylinder heads, to accept camshafts fitted with a bearing, rather than running directly in the head? Have a few I need doing, and could be more in future. TIA to anyone who responds to this.

I can't help being up in the midlands but are we looking at car or motorcycle application ?

Single cylinder Honda motorcycle engines, Chris. Wear is very common on these heads, but as most check them without releasing tension on the cam chain, the play/wear doesn't get detected that often.

I am between Petersfield and Portsmouth. I have a Victoria U2 milling machine.

Why not make some tooling (which might need a milling machine) and line bore using a lathe with the line boring tool running between centres and the tooling replacing the compound slide? That should keep the set up time down.

Happy to chat on 'phone.

John
