Re: missing thread (boost porting)
I think we all understand that anything we find on here is "do at your own risk." The technique may have not been proven sound, but I don't think is was disproven either. The OP's reaction may have been out of line, but the original premise of the thread wasn't.
There are plenty of threads around here that could lead a newb to ruin his/her motor.
Anyway, that's all I have to say about that.
I will await mechanickid or anybody else trying the mod and posting up pictures and results.
On the 2nd page of the link provided at the top of this thread is a link to a picture with a diagram of what material to remove.
