I've got a few overdrive kits to install on some 150 motors and don't want to do the rivets by hand. Anyone ever try using a pneumatic Palm nailer on these? Some other way to cheat?

Good question!

If you have a big vice they can be pressed. The vice in my garage wasn't strong enough, so they still needed some peening.
I also have an arbor press at my shop. Next time I'll try that.

At around 2:00 here:

good luck trying to control a palm nailer! Those little suckers are about as controllable as a wet fart mixed with cocaine and Miralax (and sound like one as well).

It's sad when you can't even trust a fart.

I've used both the hammer and punch method as well as a hydraulic press. I don't really have a preference on either of them. Just be careful that you don't go too crazy with a hydro press though. I think it would take a very large arbor press to peen the rivets over. My buddy as a farily heavy (250+ lbs) hyro arbor press that i've used many times for assembling parts. I dunno if his would even be strong enough.

Ended up doing the vise and then a little manual hammering. Vise definitely saved some time.
