Anyone enlarge oil drain holes in Windsor lifter valley with a bur?
Or does anyone know of other oil mods with a carbide bur?

There not really necessary but it don't hurt. Depending on the application there are some mods I do to the bearings and the oil return in the block coming out of the filter. But that is done when running loose clearances and high rpm.

Look for .0025 rod clearance .018 to .023 side clearance. Thats the way I do most of the stuff.
