Thanks Zombie. It was reading your story that gave me the confidence to go ahead and go forward with starting the rebuild.
I have been reading through all of the XL600 threads having to do with the engine and will read Gregster's thread again. It's been about 4 months since I read it so I need to go through it again.
Thanks for the offer of help when I need it. No doubt I'll be posting at some critical point!
