So you beat the snot out of the rocker shafts to get them out? They are not pressed in, FYI, and if you actually read the Bently, it explains fully how to remove them with your with not much more effort than a pinky.

I have torn down so many motors that people think you have to beat the rocker shafts out. Because of it, there is a huge box of botched rocker arms sitting under my desk to show people what happens when you do that. And people wonder why rocker arm breakage is common

Steve, Good&Tight doesn't build turbo kits for a living lol, it's a hobby that he is good at.
