Randall:
I don't know who manufactures those ,but I do build an aluminum centering gage that is concentric ...you may be able to re-machine that unit by installing a undersize bushing and indicating the outside diameter concentric then boring the bushing to correct the runout ...always an optimist...gene french

I assume that's the one available from the parts dealers for about $40. Another badly made reproduction? I think I'll make my own.

Bob Sherzer makes these, he also makes the KRW gap Gauge. His stuff is usually top notch. If you bought it through Lang's I'd suggest calling them. Even if you didn't buy it through them they can probably put you in touch with Bob.

Thanks Garry. It's been so long I can't honestly say which vendor I bought it from. I'll give Langs a call
Thanks

Randall, the centre hole in the tool is cast when the body is cast. The machining on the end you do not show is likely done in a lathe, with the casting held in place during two operations to give the diameter for the housing and then the hole size for the cam. It is hard to see how the hole could be eccentric in this scenario, unless the casting shifted during machining. Stranger things have happened.

Allan from down under.
