I got my cam gear plated with an "electroless" nickel process, to take up some of the gear lash. (Unlike standard electroplating, this is a process that can deposit metal very precisely.) The results are ambiguous, due to a lack of concentricity between the cam gear's outer diameter and the recess in the flange that locates it on the cam. Anyone interested can read along in this separate thread:

Love the build so far. Keep going!

And, no, you cannot pay someone to love your motor like you love it yourself.

I somehow feel that correcting the deck is better practice than shortening cylinders.
Might just be that it will be me that forgets their different lengths at a tear-down years from now.
More idiot proof, I guess..

Considered the HVX mods to oiling?

Also like to port the case internally to reduce 'pumping losses';
Especially with counterweights hindering the pressure from moving around in there..
