MAIN CAP COLLECTION
This is a tip to help with setting up the mandrels on the line honing machine. I have an assortment of single main caps labeled with paint marker for many different engines, on the cart next to my line hone. If I have a block that I’ve installed caps on and line bored, I don’t need to remove one cap to centralize the mandrel, I can use the corresponding marked cap to do it and it saves time. Bonus tip- On the backside of the “wing” of the line honing machine, I write what each mandrel is currently set up for using a dry erase marker. This way, no matter who was the last one to use the machine, I know what each mandrel is centralized to.
