Thanks Schmidtys and Tussuck. I am really getting excited to get it back together. It has been a long long time since I've gone this long without a ride.

By the way, I discovered an excellent way to clean carbon deposits. The deposit on my front piston was really thick and the heads were almost as thick. While I was stripping the paint off, I went ahead and put some stripper on the heads. Viola - after about 2 applications, the carbon almost completely washed off with a hose.

I mentioned to the OL about honing the jugs to a 36D or something. The skillet caught me just above my left eyebrow.
