Nate, I'm not the only person counseling you on this. Take a step back and look at your posts and your reactions to others.

They tend to be a little too "on edge".

This is meant to be helpful and supportive criticism, really.

Regards, Greg

Greg, i know what you are saying. But i think BOTH of us need to step back and look at our posts
for example, saying "This is better than a daytime soap opera". has no positive value and is just meant to "stir the pot". Hovewer, me lashing back has no positive effect either.

lets all just take it easy

Take care,

Nate H.

That's exactly so - the cross head is far too loose a sliding fit on the guide bar to provide any kind of support to the piston rod - and the guide bar itself is far to flimsy to provide much support anyway.

So if you want to get it running while waiting for new parts, you can assemble it with just the piston rod pin - leaving off the cross head, the combination lever and the union link altogether and it will run just fine, because they are also non functional.
