Thanks for your input Maverick ...
I had Item 27 silver soldered to Valve Spindle (18 ) but the wording on page 16 made me change it.
Also in don-tucker build thread in post 46 picture clearly shows a soldering process.
The Pin diameter (#27) (.093) I would leave as is and change the hole (on 18 ) size to .0938 (drill 3/32") or .0935" drill # 42.
Or better yet a 3/32 reamer since there is a lot of rubbing.

according to the note on page 14 zone B3 .
But it is not clear to me as to why ... since it is bolted. Maybe for additional mechanical strength.
Additionally there seems to be fit issue with those parts (.087 hole vs .093 pin). Looks like that area needs to be looked into for clarification.
Maybe someone would comment on that.
