    Glad to be a member of this forum! Ive been chking you guys out for while, reading all the interesting posts and what not.

    Im 55 now....(good lord!) but still having fun with working on cars. I'm a self employed automotive mechanic and have been one my entire life. But what can I say, I like oil and grease!

    Im in the process of going through the 425 on my 65 Rivi Gran Sport, SuperWild Cat. Ive had the car for about 15 years and has been a great driver, Just time for a fresh Mill. Here are a few photos of the tear down. I was surprised when I pulled #8 Piston, sometime long ago it was knurled. It showed the most wear, but 020 over is all I have to go to make it right.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi and Im glad to be here!
