btw, add a few magnets to the oil pan and drain back area in your engine, the trap and hold metalic dust that comes from wear and increase engine life span by preventing that crap embedding in the bearings

these are even more tollerant of temp swings and retain strength at even higher engine oil temps plus they are smaller and easier to use

The SH material in the D66SH magnets, means that the magnets can be heated to 300° F without any loss of magnetic strength, unlike standard neodymium magnets that begin to lose strength at 175° F. Suitable for many high temperature applications.

OH! YEAH! they help trap metalic dust there also....but be aware transmissions ALWAYS tend to have some fine aluminum dust in the pan the magnets can,t hold :thumbsup:

BTW I was asked HOW you prevent getting metalic crap into the engine when useing the LOUIS TOOL to increase pushrod slot clearance

http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=PRO-66485&N=700+115&autoview=sku

Ive done several without removing the heads, but as stated earlier I removed the intake durring the cam install process and thats when you do the checks and minor clearance work, I placed one of these (HIGH STRENGTH, HIGH HEAT RATED MAGNETS ,POSTED BELOW)under each pushrod hole/slot while doing the drill work and they catch 99% of the crud instantly, then you just remove the magnets with the crud attached, ...
BTW
I usually leave a couple in the lifter gallery to collect broken valve train components and metalic dust anyway, before re-installing the intake

high temp (300F)

HIGHER TEMP
(480F)

I buy 50-100 at a time theres LOTS of uses
