OT: I guess that's how it all started.

Hey in post #6, the picture of your wife, is she pregnant?

BTW what brand assembly lube did you use for the crankshaft install?

I saw that, and thought it was a slick idea, but can you see the guage easy in that location?

It's just a 1 3/4" guage right?

its a 2 1/16th standard size gauge... and its very easy to read, only time you cant read it well is when you are using the wipers.
