Tell y'all a secret..
If your dealing with loose splines you can use red loctite on them, locks them solid to the shaft.
But when it's time to come apart again a heat gun and a puller will be needed...

I do not think any Locktite product would solve a .003-.005 slop issue, or maybe it would, I don't know for sure. But at this point is no longer an issue with me as I have installed a FREE tight fit gear, problem solved.

I have used it on the import gen gears and they are super loose right out of the box..
Seems to work, even after long miles of use. they remain tight to the shaft ...

A bit of grind time is needed in a few places for the swing of the rods....
This is common to see when fat rods and strokes are in play together ...

Need at least 0.060" between the swinging parts ...

Been waiting for a Race spring kit, finally they showed up ..
Had to do a bit of work to the lower ret's in order to fit the V-T heads ...
Wasn't a Biggie just .015" had to come out ...

Packing the springs for the Leineweber J4 cam was going well until I started setting up to do the other head ...
... ** Came to an complete stop ** ...
