Update, The machine is put back together!!! LOL, That is however all i have been able to do with it, so i still don't know if the fix has worked for me. From the fact that there is not any new posts on this thread I don't think anyone is sitting around waiting for my results. LOL If you are, I am sorry for the time that is passing. I guess some of my delay in running this thing comes from not being happy with my machine. I really don't know what i am going to do with it. Sell it for a great deal less than i paid for it or trade it off for even less. Put it up on blocks and let my great grand kids sell it many years down the road as a collector item. LOL I just don't know. when the weather gets better here in Kentucky I will try to get it out and give it a try.
