    Thanks again everyone. The encouragement and support of this forum is unbelievable.

    A fellow just reminded me that it was less than a year ago when I was trying to true up some cast aluminum flywheels. Being able to build a running engine and fulfilling a 45 year old dream was only possible with all of your help.

    Okay...and maybe some stubbornness on my part.
    And okay...the dream's not completely fulfilled...yet.

    Some stubborness?! Hell, you put me to shame when it comes to digging in your heels. :)

    Seriously, Carl, it couldn't have happened to a nicer fellow. Congratulations.

    Good job Zeep. :bow: See what persistence and good humour does...just a new handle and a patting on the back.

    Congratulations Carl. Your gritty determination has paid off with a well deserved win. It was great to have been along for the ride feeling (through your comments) all the highs and lows as you build your engine. th_wav woohoo1

    Congratulation also to Kvom and Manfred for their fine builds also.

    Cheers :)

    Thank you all.

    I've been cruising the forum much of the day...trying to catch up...often having trouble coming up with something to say when it catches my eye (which is often)...

    It still strikes me what a great hobby this is...to make stuff...moving stuff...out of plain metal...I mean you see a piece of square metal or round rod...and see what somebody does with it...it's pretty cool.

    Great forum. Great bunch of people.

    The support and encouragement here is phenomenal.

    No no...it's not just the egg-nog (that we're trying to get rid of before it goes bad) talking.

    It's the stuff we add to it. ;D

    Yeah..you all know me by now.....thanks.
