Thanks Ryan. That's a good idea. I'll try to get around to doing that in the coming weeks. Might take me a bit as my free time for this project, and all it's surrounding tasks, is stretched thin. Loving it though. Good living. Best.
Wishing you happiness, joy and laughter (which shouldn't be difficult since you all own motorcycles).

Episode 19. Polishing aluminum engine parts and doing valve clearance check post-valve job. Difficult because existing shims all too thick after lapping valves so can't "do the math."
