Had a spare moment this evening.

Was a real pain to drill. First attempt turned into a banana...

I'll test fit tomorrow and if it looks good I'll make a few more.

Probably the best it's been in a while anyway.

maybe make a template out of steel that you can clamp the copper down to and then drill ?

Believe it or not but that is actually steel, it's just a really bad picture. For some reason the lighting at the asylum seems really odd/dim atm.

If I had the time I would possibly make a die of some sort with 2 holes and punch them out but simply don't the materials or time at the asylum these days. We made that by clamping to a piece of 4x2 and drilling it out in small steps.

That's interesting. I set my LS lifters to the factory spec of 2.09mm or 82 thou. But real LS7 lifters might be different? Most marketed as LS7 lifters aren't actual LS7 lifters but the regular LS lifters.
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.
