Re: Hello from Pennsylvania!
Well, I would have pushed harder to get this thing done this weekend, but I made a 2-stroke novice mistake.
I ended up snapping a piston ring when inserting the piston into the jug. I didn't notice that there are alignment pins in the rig grooves to keep the ring ends away from the ports. With the upper ring on top of the pin, I ended up snapping the ring in half. D'OH!
Oh well. I should be able to get this thing running by the end of the week.
