And tattoos, don't forget the tats! AAAAAARRRRRR!

No, I'm not bringing her to Colorado, I least I don't think I am. She left a little while ago and said she'll be back in a few days so who knows!

You'll know when she shows up ready to go......wearing leathers, and Ohh....a new tattoo.

Today I soaked the 'new' pistons I got from Andreas in de-carb juice and checked the piston ring end gaps in the jugs for my '80G.

I have the wrong rings.

The STD end gaps were over 0.040" so I pulled a piston out of the solution, scrubbed it clean and it has a "25" stamped on top. I measured it and it's about 71.75 mm so the pistons and jugs are 1st oversize.

I really should have checked before I bought the rings but now I have spares.

How's it going, Garth!

I don't remember... I thought I had 1st over rings and they turned out to be 4th over. That's what started this whole ringing thing when I did a rebuild right before going to Colorado that year.

That's why I fixed the XJ first! One engine and its petty problems at a time. Oh, by the way, there's "just one more thing!"

Yes, the classic Colombo line! You named that bike extremely appropriately.
