I talked to one of the tech reps (at the manley booth) at subiefest and he said it was not a good idea to shave or grind any of there rods. It weakens/takes off the strength coating and causes a weak link. Im not a pro motor builder just thats what the guy said.

Im in your same boat rite now. Just did my leak down and found lots of air coming out of the dipstick and oil fill tube.
