Thanks for all your help again, for getting my engine all tuned up.
... . I had the engine running yesterday again and it runs very well. Also when we got the engine running in Oshkosh (2010), one of my buddies video taped the whole thing and put it on you tube. If you want to take a look at it the link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl47_f7B5e8 -so thanks again, I really appreciate all of your help. I am very pleased with the engine.
