The last image I remember, is of you startin' the thing with the head covers off, over cardboard, with oil splashing everywhere, driven by them two GIANT oil pump gears, is where I'll get in trouble...
..tryin' to sound like I know something....
That's my point Rapid Roy!!!!
>Low oil delivery with slingers.... "gravity oil feed?"
>Drum Brakes...send out a semaphore, before you think you might have to slow down....
>Magneto fired....the generator is a nuisance
>Earls' Fork....'s black...with white stripes......'s a /2.....
