Respectable work you’ve done there! Don’t forget to re-torque those head bolts following the pattern in the manual after running it for a while. I ruined a head by forgetting to do that before I knew better...

Thanks for the advice. I picked up a basic torque wrench this morning and re-torqued them

Video of the machine idling at ~1200.  This seems high to me but that's the spec.

No more chances for snow now so took some pics before draining the gas, taking the battery out and parking it. Maybe a job or two will come up in the summer.

Love them! 

Much easier to steer now. One hand on the spinner is all it takes

Pricey but worth it
