    Steve,

    Like you the idea of an Aussie design really appeals. The Stiletto at 34" is about what I'd use for a 1.5, in fact mine has a Tyro in it. I'd increase it to 125% making it 42.5" and...

    Here's my TBR Series 70. It's since had new P/L from Adelaide Aeromotive and yet to be fully run in. Very nice handling motor.

    Jay,

    Some of what you say is true, some half true and others not true.
    Probably the first thing to learn is there are no absolutes.

    Early indications of the rebuild are good.

    Starts easily and runs smoothly.

    It's still well undercomped & blubbering rich. It's had about 10 minutes so time will tell.

    Old diesel fuel, as well as being a great weed killer, is also a terrific fire lighter. Half a cup and away we go!

    Fiery,

    I'd guess that Jon Fletcher (in Sawtell NSW) could help with remanufactured parts. He did a Lightening Bolt Taipan 2.5 for me. This included a replacement NVA.
    Lovely work!

    Ray,

    The Rothwell solution is much more elegant.

    It is simply a brass comp screw whether tommy bar or grub screw.
    The different expansion rate of brass means it holds the setting.
