AMGM. Thanks for the info. The Timevalve on my 450 is all mandrel bent. Beautiful work. Guess they figured out how to bend it with cracking it or folding it. Thanks for the advice.
G-Man, I'll call Europa next week and ask them what their definition of 30k front end service is. An ounce of prevention in this vehicle is worth every penny. By the way. Nice description "It appears to be as solid as the block of granite it must have been carved from."
