For those, like me, that have learned a wealth of information from Jake Raby, The Knowledge Gruppe has just started a YouTube channel called "Rennvision". He posted a simple iPad video on Bore Scoring and now posted a DIY video on installing the IMS Solution plus some videos on many of the LN tool kits he helped engineer and develop. Pretty cool stuff. 

Check it out...

Not something I would ever attempt but it was interesting to watch.  I'll leave it to the experts.

Amen, to that! I don't have the right tools or lift to do it safely on my own, but with the wealth of information that Jake is willing to offer, I'm pretty sure it will help someone that does. But I completely agree, some things are better left for those that have the right training and expertise to tackle a job like this.

Not surprisingly, if you follow these manuals instructions and take your time, it is really not that difficult. Most people that we see in trouble "after the fact" either did not follow the instructions, or decided for unknown reasons to take a short cut.  Follow the instructions and you will be fine.

Good advice! Yea, the instruction manual is written very well and with the video, it should minimize the common mistakes that are made when carrying a project of this complexity. What I really appreciate is Jake's willingness to discuss in great detail the steps of pre-qualification and it's so important. Can't tell you how many threads I've read where shops installed a new IMS bearing on a car that had preexisting metal contamination which eventually took out the newer bearing.  Ouch.

And yet people regularly argue here and elsewhere that you can put a new bearing in an engine already full of metal and get away with it.

Yep! Water on a duck's back!
