    Tight fit.....underneath...

    A bench vise in the reverse direction should do the trick if there's a square lip on it. But, keep in mind. They're really not made for applying pressure outward. You might damage your vise with too much pressure. Harbor Freight also sells a wooden stretcher tool (for a lack of a better...

    Anyone painted with flake before?

    How are these welds?

    Pud: If you're not confident in your welds, take it to a professional shop and have them run a bead and reinforce what you've already tacked together. I did the same on an earlier frame. Shop cost $100.00+- and I slept much better knowing I'd have somebody else (other than myself) to bitch...

    single VM36 tuning question.

    single VM36 tuning question.

    I have the same setup, but haven't gotten to the point of tuning it yet. Joe (WiseGuy) says a 22.5 to 25 Pilot is about right. And, 190-200 main. Have you tried the smaller pilot? And, what type of air cleaner are you running? Rich
