Looking at your schedule, Utah for one or probably two days may not work for you this year (now that we can afford it...) - thoughts?

Sorting out CHT issues
Fitting front heat diverter cable
Fitting new pushrod seals
Fitting nose vent seal
Fitting engine hatch seal
Fitting tailgate seal
Maybe new soft brake lines, flush, and re-fill
Adjust left rear wheel lean...
Other issues TBD... :pirate:

Greetings,

Eskimotom in Lake Wobegon, Richmond, MN here, if you can work me into your Minnesota route, full day deposit posted today.

I'd simply like the start-to-end tune procedure / lesson & a proper compression test. I can't dial in the idle.
It would be sweet to test/replace the power brake booster, the front passenger signal light is shorting. With any remaining time, I like to examine the '71 engine I picked up as a possible future replacement.

Man oh man. Last year, I had no response from the Minnesota contingent, and you requested an appointment and pre-paid a deposit with no agreed-upon date in sight. I had to send you a refund because you were too far off the beaten path.

This year, I hear from you for the first time on April 17th (you again sent a pre-paid deposit against the system that allows us to formalize our agreed-upon dates), but the Minnesota schedule has congealed with no room! Three days ago, my Montana call asked me to move up a day, I said yes, now here you are. I can't say yes at this moment! You will have to stand by. I will be exceedingly cruel if the rest of the gang is late with the deposit deadline of May 11th.

Sorry Tom, you must understand that I put up the Schedule and the Preliminary Interest Gauge in February (!), then March is the puzzle-fitting interval. Ayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Stand by! Your call is very important to us!
