Can anyone give me the dimensions to make up a radius arm reaming tool similar to the factory tool. I bought a short 13/16 ream and want to make it into a proper tool and have access to lathe to do this.
Also I’ve seen that the correct tool have a bush that fits into the roller bearing end to guide the reamer inline. Is the roller bearing fitted first and then the bush fits inside the roller bearing to ream it or do you fit the roller bearing after you have finished reaming.

I don't have any dimensions but as you say there is a guide, this is in place of the bearing when reaming and then the grease tube goes in then the roller bearing.

the tools bush fits on the needle roller bearing end, once you have removed the old needle roller.


you fit the new one once you have cleaned out the swarf from the reaming.


i hope you got a hand reamer, its tapered, a machine reamer is not and very hard to use by hand.
