As usual good information!However can you explain the purpose of the nut/bolt assembly on the brass pilot,you refer to holding it by hand.Sorry ,not trying to be a trouble.cheers

The screw / nuts etc. set the depth of the tool. You hold it from the back side so that the washer is up against the case. This sets the pilot so that the brass is .110" from the outside of the other end of the hole. That way when the counterbore cuts the hole .110" deep it contacts the brass. This is also why I had to install a shorter screw when cutting the recess for the seal on the clutch pedal.

I guess I needed to explain that better. I will add this to the story. Thanks for catching that!

An alternative to machining the hogshead is to put the seals in the pedal cams as shown in this previous post.

Both methods have their pros and cons.
Both methods are very effective.

Do you now find you need to lubricate the Reverse and Brake cams now that no oil leaks out?

My tool for creating counterbores...a counterbore very similar to yours, with a 5/8" pilot and an adjustable depth stop. A 7/16 hex has since been added to the tang to facilitate driving it with an extension (either hand or power cranked). The 7/16 hex allows the depth stop to slide off if necessary, as the ID of the depth stop is .5005" and across the tips of the hex is just under that.
