  1. No, I will not be there.
  2. Hi Gene, I looked at the Snell's D looper. The flywheel rotates about 270 degrees in either direction with absolutely no resistance (no compression) and goes 'clunk' like metal to metal. Spark plugs are in all 4. What's likely? Albert said the motor ran 6 yrs. ago and it's just castor oil buildup, but it sounds like metal to me. I posted a photo of the motor, what might it be worth. Albert wants $2000 for DeSilva plus motor. I'm active in AOMC where motors like that are collected and traded but there are few around.Best, Joe

  7. I hate that I missed you and Norma, but I am glad you went to the Smokeys! Bill told me to tell you he needs your help, he's working on new prototypes and can't find a good machinist anywhere. I'll call you before I head back to the lake.
