Line boring a VW case should only be done by a trained professional with the proper tools. Most shops that do line boring have a bar and a set of cutters that were set years ago and have not been checked to ensure accuracy for years. Here at Vintage Volks, we have a special micrometer that is used specifically for checking the cutter depth to ensure your case is cut to exact factory specifications. In addition, you get a cut sheet that shows the exact measurements for your case when we are done.
We have actually seen a set of bearings that were off by .003" in both directions in 1 set of bearings; 1 was .003" small, the other was .003" big. And that was in the same set! Because of this, we will not guarantee bearing fitment if you supply the bearings.
