Hey faza79,

Take your time with the fotos...I'm currently tryna finish my first valve adjustment. I have to re-do them because it's not idling very well.

My home is on the east coast (Delaware) but I'm currently working in New Mexico. Here's the road in front of the Apartment I'm staying with the mountains in the backdrop:



Here's some pics of removal of key components:





Good luck with your build.

Hey faza,

Hurry up and finish (I'm kidding).

I'm really stoked because my valve adjustment to .005 turned out GREAT!

It's friggen freezing here in south New Mexico but I still went out for a ride.

Here's a pic of the mountainside view before getting to Cloud Croft, New Mexico.



Looking forward to your pics man!
