Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

That's good to know, I added and removed shims where the accelerator bolts go but that was not helping much. Taking the time to work that detail out must improve operation and shifting.

Re: High compression head choice.

That's good to know, perhaps my friend ran his studs in too far. I am moving up from a Snyder 5:1 head to 6:1. New build with babbit mains and inserted rods.
