I guess you were the green mile rig, sucking in all the bad JU-JU for everyone ! I was really bummed for you when you're studs sheared off on Cadillac. I only got 13 needle bearings out before you're magnet broke, so that may be part of what that sound is :confused.
I have over half the parts, including harness, if you decide to toss the carb and go TBI. You'll be glad you did.
Great trail, great people. We can't wait for next year !
