    I think they set them to show once per thread (which was nice of them) because i started an argument over sig pictures making a mess of the reading.
    If you look at your first post here, it has the sig.

    If you look also at ricks first post, it's there, and down a scroll it's gone.

    Brad did you have to re-pin fit the rods and pistons (from your pictures it looks like it)? Or were they machining them to a specific clearance they prefer
