    RE: Savage x gears not aligned

    OFNA makes some good clutchbell shims that could align them up.  Try to shift the motor forward first...if that doesnt work shim the clutchbell out.

    RE: Just my luck

    High temps in the grass is normal.  More strain on the engine = higher temps.  I wouldnt worry too much about it unless it starts to creep to the mid 300's.  Even on grass mid 300's is high.

    RE: LRP .30 questions

    Not quite on mine. Point being not all engines go by the "flush" standard of factory settings. Good practice to refer to the manual instead of assuming flush is universal on all engines.
