I agree with the cheap tools thing. I just thought.........well I guess I didn't. I agree that the cone piece is supposed to end up in the tunnel. I think it is made to install the inner bearing first using the taper on the outside of the block because the cone piece if turned around has the provisions to hold a bearing just like the bushing on the bearing end of the tool. So I would imagine that your are supposed to install the inner bearing with the cone on the outside of the block then turn the bushing around and slide it into an installed bearing and use it for the alignment of the outer bearings. I just can't get the damned thing to fit down into the cam tunnel. I will mess with it a little more tomorrow after work and post what I figure out or don't figure out. Maybe I will just sharpen the end of the shaft and have a nice stake.
