      Should this have the drain hole drilled for the counter balance shaft as part of this job? Replacement of the shaft bearing there?

      That`s a way more involved process and most have been done or destroyed themselves by now. Apparently all V8`s will need this someday, although my 07 S80 with 77k miles is still dry. A couple years ago I gave each valve cover nut ¼ turn, maybe that helped.
