Thanks! Glad everyone is enjoying this.
I'm not sure I'm familiar with the $.22 fix for the carb. Can someone enlighten me?
Update: I got all of the parts in from Eagle Mike except for the refreshed head. Damn, that 688 piston looks good. Next step is to drop the cylinder jug off at the machine shop and get it bored and honed.
