hey dude!

Funny you're here, was for ? reason thinking of you recently around here - go figure. Well, great to see you still around stranger.

A'ight Koz... spill - what's with the cast? D'oh! Great you scored the bits you need - hope they get you to the goal line.

MikeD!... damn on the link - was a vid of my maiden smoky startup... this work (mind you this was cold start smoke... shoulda seen it hot!)?:

So, Chris C kindly returned my trivial call today - too cool. He verymuch agreed about the restrictor. Damn I hope it's that. Gave me a snazzy DIY solution I'm going to knockout tomorrow. Buy 1/4 long brass screw/bolt, cut off head, ram down into brass oil tube until it's countersunk, drill out center bore to 0.55-0.60 (1-1.5mm), and Bob's mah uncle. Schweet.

Let's hope that's it folks.

Lastly, a man admits when he's wrong - I feel badly for jumping to the snap conclusion I got a bum unit / boned by the seller. The stress of the process and hurdles and sleep deprivation and kicks in the nutes wore me too thin and it was late and I was frustrated - t'was all. I know better and should act accordingly!
