Very tight to fit rocker shaft into pedestals

Recommended Posts

Hi. Got the shaft off/through the pedestals with a bit of a struggle, by using decorator heat gun on around the top of the pedestals, which expanded the bores a bit. Need an easier re-fit if pos.

The shaft etc was a used one that had been sitting around for years. I think there's a film of baked on engine oil causing the tightness. Any suggestions to remove it please?. I was thinking maybe Caustic Soda for the steel shaft?.

Any ideas?, would be great.

Thanks, Dave
