Excellent Bill, I'm really really glad to hear you all got it worked out. That must be a load off your back and I must say, I don't think I would have been as calm as you have through out this whole process.


Congrats

I'll be ready for NEBF. Meanwhile, it'* a matter of taking my time and getting things buttoned up correctly.

It may hurt for me not to romp or get on it. But there'* going to be some "settling in" miles. Remember..the crank came out as did that chipped piston. Going to make sure things are happy and healthy before any attempt to make real power.

Your already making real power, you just have to refrain from using it for a bit.... Poor Bill. I know how hard thats going to be for you!!!

So the pitch is lower? Does it sound like a power steering whir?

Good work, Bill and company! :thumup:

Glad it was relatively minor and all fixed now. I'm definitely interested in seeing a vid when you get the chance.
