SOOOOOOOOOOOO...Rex, now that it runs great is it still for sale?

It reminds me of the city slicker who asked the farmer what happened to the horse he was going to sell him. The farmer replied, "Oh, he got better."

Another man bought a mule once for $400, and went to pick it up. The poor critter had died, and the farmer wouldn't give a refund.
Undeterred, the man loaded the dead carcass into his truck and said he would raffle it off. The farmer said one couldn't raffle a dead mule, but asked him later how it went. The man replied, "I sold 200 tickets at $5 each. The only complaint I got was from the winner, so I gave his $5 back."

Your engine looks great though Rex. I have a 9 Economy that needs a sleeve. You've inspired me to keep after it! Kevin
