I'm taking some vacation time next week, see if I can get to the bottom of this.
Keep you posted. Thanks again for the great advice everybody.
Later y'all,
Colin.

I'm glad that you have yours fixed, but just because that was the problem with yours does not mean that he has the same problem.

That said, much more often than not, tires/wheels are the source of vibration.

Have a great day,

wheel tire balance

I agree with the wheel & tire generally being the cause of vibration. One of the problems is that you can balance a square tire.

Larry,
Never thought of that. Thanks for the tip. I just bought an ultra sonic cleaner. I'm experimenting with gas injectors and fuel dist heads. I'll keep you posted. I'm having good results with the injectors.
