    Well unfortunately the piston I got the hole for the wrist pin is too big for my wrist pin and upper needle bearing. Which means it's either for a old motor with a bushing or I have to get one from Zoom. Now it's to late to contact them and tomarrow is Sunday. I am way to addicted to this. Been without a motor for almost a week and I am jonesing so bad for my bike. This is just dumb.

    PS Just got a return email from Dax this is the only piston they carry so I guess I do have to order one from zoom. Rats, dang, shoot, fooey, blah blah blah.

    PPS So I just ordered a new piston from Zoom w/shipping $21.45. (that included a $2 discount coupon) That means I am now a little over $72 into a new top end. I could have bought a complete motor w/shipping from Dax for $104 Somebody -please kick me...

    I guess the good news is for those interested. The Dax type D 80's have a larger wrist pin. Which means it will last longer because of the larger bearing surface. At least I learned something. I knew I should have just ordered a motor. gurrrrr

    Is part of the fun, the learning and is always good to have spare parts. They always come in handy down the road even if they go to a buddy who is stuck with no wheels and needs some odd or end. (Which always seems to happen on week-ends)

    Know what you mean about the "MB Jones" Junster. All mine are down and running out of ridding weather.

    Hang in there.
