why do you make it .20 below , wouldnt you want more compression with it + .20 above , or would it not make that much of a difference.



You have to give some room for that piston to move. The amount "in the hole" plus the head gasket gives you proper clearance. You can get the compression you want by milling the head.  You can run it tighter, but you have less margin for error.  Maybe that made sense... lol

You are right, the bearing will not hold as tight.
When you put them on the inside, it looks neater and tidier.

Well for safety equipment I wear starting at my head, a Simpson helmet, kart neck brace that turns down my back like a hahns device for extra support, Kart abrasion resistant fire retardant one pice drivng suit with kart body armor under it. Protects the ribs and back bone and shoulder. Simpson gloves and driving shoes. Hit the pavement at 62 mph and walked away. SORE but walked away and didn't even rip the suit. 60+ kartwheel at Nationals last year knocked out but no injury's just SORE. I have broke my elbow but never knew anything was bad worng till 5 months later never missed arace either. Its when I slowed down after the season it really hurt. Reason for all this equipment I flipped early in my career 45 mph mower went 12 feet in the air twice landing on me both times, 4 fractured ribs bruised lung class 4 concusion, bruised hip and couldn't hardly move for a week. Had just the required gear long sleeves gloves helmet neck brace (standard) and long pants. From that point I made sure to have everything I could get that would protect me. Its payed off ten fold.



Not taking a bit away from all the rest you have done, this example of safety first is more important than all the victory laps you have made. Folks could take as much from this as they can and get a tad more protection.  George, do you think we could get another section under the index labeled "Safety Equipment", and maybe how the items are used and what is out there. There are alot of items in that list I have never heard of.

I was wondering the same thing as well. So I did a search.

I am sure someone will chime in with a good source for chain.
