Shovelhead frame repair in the top neck bearing area

The bearing race was way too loose on the top of the 1980 frame for an unknown reason, and it need to be repair, so my friend ask me to take care of it for him, he heard that I have done something similar in the past,here is some pics of the steps I have taken .

So I pull out a special tool I did years ago to correct a similar problem on a Evo frame, did a few modification to adapt to the shovelhead frame, the goal here was to machine the top portion in perfect line to bottom bearing axis with a guide in the bottom bore and add a bushing flush to bottom of top bearing area ,the boring bar will have a better stability and the bore would be possible
