It’s a tool that aids in the disassembling of LSx rocker arm trunnions. The latest trunnion upgrade kit from Brian Tooly racing requires pressing in new captured needle Torrington’s. Most other manufactures are slip fit bushings.
Disassembling is one of those deals where you need 6 hands. This contraption makes it a quick one hand operation. The lower die plate locates and fully supports the rocker below the centerline of the punch. The lower die plate is pocketed to hold the dies and is bolted to the press frame so nothing moves. It requires 2 punch and die sets 1 set for disassembling and one set for pressing in the BTR Torrington’s.
CLine does the bottom of your ram have a sacrificial pad on it or is it a square ram with no pad? It would be nice to have a way to mount the upper punch to the ram rather than having to hold it.
To help hold the lower die plate to your press platen I could pocket and epoxy 4 neodendium magnets as well. Ooooorrrr you could run down to HF and snag one of these from the return table.
I picked up one of these 2 from the return table for 27 bones and the only thing wrong was the rubber handle ends were missing. Either way no prob.
This is the V2 punch adapter
