Just FYI - I've almost completed an article on the IRCM that includes schematic, theory of operation, and parts list. I plan on adding a troubleshooting guide to it sometime in the near future, too.

Pete and I could probably put our headds together and come up with an article on what to do when you have one head bolt shorter than all the others after removing them. Would be a very brief article though.......Cry and Cuss.

Joe, The short version goes like this:
1st picture. We broke the head bolts loose. Gary starts taking them out while I look for tools. Gary:" Is one of these bolts suppose to be shorter than the others?" Pete:"WTF"

2nd Picture: Pete: Oh sh.......t!. Gary: "Where my Tagamint?"
After trying to weld a nut to the stub about 6 times we....

3rd picture: .... See Gary's car go off the old time Machinest that none of us knows.

4th picture (below): See Gary's car come back after an afternoon at the Machinest. See Gary escort his car up the driveway.
