Re: Machine shop instructions for rear axle key way?

the answer to your question is tell them to put the shaft in a swivel vise using v blocks.
swivel the vice until the taper indicates straight with the machine ways.
use a 1\4 woodruff key cutter and key it .135 deep.

Re: Lack of power questions

if you replaced the lifters you had to remove the cam and so you would lose timing.
if you did not replace them your clearance is .010 plus what ever divet you had worn in the old lifter.
did you cut the seats and lap the valves? philip
