Thanks Paul, I'm planning on being there if nothing bad or unexpected happens between now and June. I'll see if I can track you down, I'm pretty much a newbie there and don't know a lot of folks.

Yes, I have the chain, sprockets and all but also have a bad coil in the magneto so am running it with a battery and coil for now. I drug my feet and won't have time to get the mag fixed before Coolspring so... Am also working on a pattern for the hot tube setup but this is a 1st for me so I suppose I'll have a pretty good pile of kindling long before I have a suitable pattern.
