Made the Tire Change

I made the 380 change last month, like the fit and feel. Running with out wheel pants at the moment. Since I run with a 0540 I felt the bigger tire would help out.

Cool Fish Eyes

There are several things that will cause this. Oil in your air line, Armoral in the air and using a new tack rag before appling paint. Always use a "used" tack rag on final surfaces if you must.

Thumbs up Attached gear and cam upgrade.

If you send the assesory case cover to Chuck Ney they will modify it to except the new cam. They basically change the position of the oil slinger by removing material and reattaching.
