    Better to find it like that than having it come apart in the traps.

  24. Hey Carl - how will you know that the faces of these nuts are all at the same depth and correctly centered as compared to the converter centerline? Just wondering how you managed to "true" everything? If it isn't true, can sure cause some issues . . .

    When I saw the photos of the bolt failure I wondered what you were going to do to keep it from happening again. Now I know. Your abilities never cease to amaze me.
