I still have it. John was going to send me a replacement 7mm drill bit. If one I found at McMaster-Carr for $25 is the right length (200mm), I am going to order it later today as I need to get this work done and the kit outta here.

UPDATE: Well, the drill bit has to be the longer one $54 so I am going to contact John as he said he could get one cheaper and send it to me.

Well post you address and i'll send what I have which maynot be full length but it is 7mm.

Ya know who ever receives the Kit and sees that something is BROKEN or missing needs to INFORM ME so I can withhold from their deposit the cost of whatever they fawked up and the post to get it to the poor sap waiting.

So, you need a bit, the current one is broken, who broke it?
Was it broken when you got it, who'd you get it from?


Further 7mm is 0.275"
9/32" is 0,1mm larger.

Maybe somebody who has broken my drill bit could find a long 9/32" bit.

John, thanks for your response.

The 7mm in the kit was wobbly and the shank somewhat chewed up from slipping in the previous user's drill chuck.

You can deduct from my deposit the cost of a replacement bit for the smaller 1/4 bit becuz after I used it, I noticed it was also slightly wobbly. Since I didn't check it closely prior to my use, I could have bent it myself.

I will check on line for a 0.275/ 9/32 bit. I will also send you my address.

Wobbly?
WTF, over?
Sure you chuck isn't the source of the wobbzlerz?
Dress down the burrs with a file and tighten the damn chuck.
Wassamatta wit youse guys? Youse all had polio as children and can't tighten a check?

Lissen these thing have drilled only a few holes in nice soft cast iron, something is seriously up-fawked if the bits are buggered after less than 200 holes or so in iron.

Can you find a 9/32 bit locally?

Yes, John, I did clean up the chuck end of the 7mm before chucking it up. I also rolled it on a known flat surface and it was clearly bent. I used oil on the 1/4 bit when drilling the holes in the block. It worked fine but as I mentioned, when I finished and checked it (also on flat surface) I could see it was bent slightly. By me or previous user, who knows, but I take it on myself to foot the bill for a new one unless I can bend it (and the 7mm straight) again.

It was slightly bent when it arrived at my doorstep. I put it in the vice and got it decently straight enough to not worry me. I guess I forgot to post that in here...

I would like to use it after you get done with your block. If you pick it up from John I can return it!

Sorry boys, not been looking in as much what with some real fools running rampant here.
And sickened at some really asswipe comments from f*****rads.


What do we need to get back on track?
Can I help you Washington guys by just doing the job? Slide on by and we can do it in short time and even turbo drain if you need that.

That might work. Maybe I will skip my class some Monday and come down with the block, that's about the only free time I could make. Need to talk to you about a cage and some other things as well. Do you have the actual squirters in stock too?

Can't get away on Saturday or Sunday? There's no rest for me just cause all the rest of you lightweights take time off. But if monday is the day, then sure that would be cool-o-roonie.
Just bring some American Spirits, and HOT Tall Latte double shot.

And I just picked up today 8 more squirters.

Maybe the guy who just PMed me about local squirters can con-nordin-nate with us and we do a couple of blocks all at the same time, same set up. That'd be best for me.

FYI, no oil needed when drilling cast iron.
I will vouch for Steve Noe being an above-competent drill operator and mechanic in general.

I will clean up the thread later when I get a chance.

John you've got yourself a nice thing going on down there, there was some pretty impressive fab/machine work on your site. I will have to talk to ya about doing some other stuff for the ol' Volv when im down there.

Yeah, it's a Monday . I am not going to have this coming Monday free, but the 13th I will.

Funny that you say I'm moving like the flash, my car has been on jack stands with only small progress for the past 2 years

This kit works on a plain old B23 block too, and not just the B230, correct? I probably sound stupid for asking but I just wanted to make sure.

Yep.
Should work on old B20 pushrod thangs too.

The whole idea was to let guys rebuild their existing block whatever it is, indeed especially if they have the more desirable B21s and B23s with the lovely forged steel cranks, and especially for you guys who live where there aren't dozens of dead 240s in the yards with those nicer motors.

Something like "Squirters for the Masses!" or "All Power to the Squirtatariat!"

Hey whoever has this thing for months now, did you figure out that the 7mm bit can be swapped for a 0.275" or 0.276" bit?
