Thanks for the Boldface, 3phase. I'm askeert I may have a problem in there....I did have resistance. Couldnt overcome it. That's why I popped the starter.

I false alarmed on the clearance check/shim change, and really dont know when i will actually be able to get in there. Now I guess I'm looking for a bent valve. joy.

Yeah it's a pretty blue, but just because you're old is no excuse to buy a bagger. Fortunately I have wrenches.

Welcome to the Bent Valve Club! Replacing valves isn't difficult, just annoying.

We don't have meetings but do commiserate as needed: you have my heartfelt commiserations.

BVC meeting

Hi, My name is T.C., and I haven't been on a "BENDER" for 17 years. I keep my bent valve on the workbench to remind me not to get bent ever again! :P

Well I was kind of bent over the whole business, truth be told. Ah well....

I'm thinking of some responses. They are in poor taste.
