"Lonnie 3-3/4 fingers" is my nickname. Don't ask. All I can say is that when you're young and drunk (reads stupid), you shouldn't work on cars.

It's not the man of the house, it's his wife that said she'd shoot down my planes. A self proclaimed witch, a sister of the coven. I should think she would be happy to have someone to fly with.:D

That's what it's all about:)

Gary had sent me a bunch of Saito 45 parts. More than a few of those parts went to a deserving individual. Speaking of which, we haven't heard from Pedro in a while.

I'm very happy too. The original 180GK cam had a loose lobe which in turn grooved out the tappet face straight across the middle. Amazing how fast that happened really, the engine burned less than 2...

Needle adjustments affect temp/pressure compensation?
