      Thas OK. "School", "short", "drive" are in context all variables affected by "brewery".

      Looks like a nice place, surprised that it's a '51.

      This makes me think you're on the right track. You've changed the symptom.

      What about crank pulley?

      I have no idea what you're talking about. But in concept, the Ice Bullet thang sounds fun. Me; I'm think upgrade to frozen potato-gun, about 20- 30mm or so. That's a "Hi there!".

      The metal plate is just backing for the covers, an attachment. So if you decide to go without covers, no real need for it. OTOH hard to dig out, but OTOOH if it's damaged and coming apart it has to...

      The IS seal being a bit off couldn't cause the belt to walk. At worst you'd have an oil leak, or seep.

      All the shafts driven by the belt (crank, cam, IS) run the length of the engine and are...

      Well hell... that's different. Hmm... you just might have made a convert. Do I have to give up anything fun, or do any weird rituals?



      FTFY

      Nah, was in a rude mood. Forget "Lucy", and clock stopped (it was a tangent unlikely to be repeated or figured out anyway).

      Ya know; maybe give it a couple hundred miles, or a couple of weeks....

      No... one of the rare occasions where I can fully support the proverb, "Ignorance is bliss" (which is more often why we have so many grinning idjits running around, but I'll be nice and not go...

      I think AZ Autohaus is now up to $75 for free shipping, but yeah I get stuff from them; like 'em. Pay attention; but you can get good stuff for good prices, look forward to what you plan to do and...

      Perceptible barely. Chunk - kachunk felt at fingertips, I know what you mean.

      But hmm... IN/OUT is axial (and such small amount should be OK), was there any play off-axis? That shaft has a bearing...

      Unless the head surface (top o' the block) and crank axis have suddenly become narrower at the belt end... hell, I got nuthin'.

      The belt is obviously walking.

      Yeah, I did already say that in this thread. OK, cool; I'm just checking my CYA status.

      Yeah well... you could call it doing penance for my past transgressions. Or not.

      Not that I'm Catholic... not anymore anyway, gave it up for Lent. :laugh:
