    A friend recently had a noise that sounded like two pieces of metal tapping. It was a broken engine mount tube, two pieces of metal tapping.
    Easy to overlook, but easy to fix.

    I put timing marks on the edge of my spacer that's made out of an old flywheel. It makes timing mags pretty easy.

    I covered my front seat bottom and the backs of front and rear seats with fabric about 9 years ago. So far, so good.
