if you buy a part, and have to modify stock equipment to make it work.... its the wrong part
Not necessarily, like everyone else my thrust plate also needed to be countersunk with a new set. Annoying, but not wrong. And yeah, put the red loctite on the thrust plate screws

Sad thing is, I don't know any machine shops around my area... Who is going to want to do something that little anyway...

You shouldn't have a problem getting them to do it. Try auto parts stores, if you know any that do any sort of machining (flywheels, etc). If not they could probably at least point you in the right direction

the stock bolts wont clear the sprocket thats why they send you the ones that need to be countersunk. I had to do this for my cam swap. And i agree a billet timing set is not needed but i know that if your running a billet core cam like i am it is required
