spindle question

I was watching the Boyd show fri. night, they installed a spindle by heating the spindle support the spindle fit into, aluminumn, freezing the steel spindle and popping the spindle into the aluminumn carrier. This is supposed to hold when the metal returns to a room temp. No welding or anything else to hold the spindle into place. Is this a normal procedure? Dan

Yes, we do it with valve guides all the time. I happened to see that particular show. The guy is not a real brainwave, as the first thing you don't do is use your hands to transport the thing from the freezer, and you have to do this accurately and quickly or you get the problem he had the first time!
