    Probably from one of the driveshaft cups... most likely the front one for the rear driveshaft. You may be running in FWD only and didn't notice it. Use some blue Loctite when putting it back in.

    If you had the flywheel off, make sure the tapered collet is all the way back to the step in the crankshaft. You pull out on the crankshaft as you push the tapered collet back.

    A LSN set too lean will cause the idle speed to slowly increase (and may eventually stall). Try turning the LSN out about 1/4 turn and see what happens.

    My OS 30VG has O-rings on the pinch bolt. No leaks there.

    Most of my other engines require sealing around the pinch bolt. Of course they don't use O-rings.

    RE: Goodbye, my friends.

    It won't pick back up if people like you keep leaving.

    I've quit a few forums and always due to poor moderation. At least I don't see that here.

    Anyway, I hope you change your mind.

    Balancing doesn't do much on MT or Buggy wheels (because the tire turns into a bagel shape at high speed and throws off your balance job).
