    Steve R. & Dave the Wave... missed you guys on
    the lake this weekend - maybe next weekend.
    Mermaid went out end of summer shopping and
    I floated around on the lake myself. So quiet and
    peaceful I could almost hear that sucking sound
    in my wallet from Mermaids shopping spree.

    Doug, sorry to hear about your Bakelite pulley
    wheel. My Amphi consumed 3 of those damn
    Bakelite pulley wheels like they were chocolate
    chip cookies. I found religion in metal pulleys.
    Didn't seem to matter if I had a 370 pound
    passenger or a solo adventure... Bakelite is evil.
    As for my motor mounts they appear average to
    fair and will be replaced when I install my new
    Spitfire racing engine... some day. Consider I
    only drive a half mile to the lake so I can limp
    along for another season or two. As for being
    "psychic," I reckon my relationship with Amphi
    goes a little "over board" (pun intended) to the
    point of being psychotic. There are worse
    afflictions, but that goes off topic a bit. And
    finally Doug I have a lathe fixture for holding
    a metal pulley during the needed modifications.
    I'd be happy to FedEx it to you... but only if you
    remember the "a" at the end of my name. ;)

    `64 Turquoise - with metal pulley wheel!!!
