Having said that I like to work on my engines, I've never done anything "inside" the engine. I have to say, now that I've seen you tear yours all the way down, that without a doubt, I am both more, and less intimidated than before...

Keep it coming! MedSailor
He's got me wanting to do it again.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
