You did see the opening remarks, right!? It’s meant to be a “hack job” to show that the average joe schmoe with no access to machine shop tools can still accomplish the seal mod. My popcorn went stale waiting for this to get good.

Gotta love the Hack jobs, keeps the poor man riding! Too bad we didn't have digital cameras, way back when, there is no tellin' what ingenuity we've missed out on. Doin' it the right way is great, but if you can achieve the same goal using a hack, that's fantastic!

That doesn't tell us how to do it and educate the Ironhead community that might want to do your fix, which I think you have claimed in the past to be a goal.

Pictures are worth a thousand verbal beatings! Mind reading went out in the '90's.

I missed the last one. I'm stayin' put for this one.

Oldschool...

Like doodah man said, I think the point is/was to be a "hack job". Despite the fact he can be an awnry old f*(k , bustert pretty much knows his $h!+ when it comes to this sort of thing. I'm sure he could do it up pretty. I think he's trying to show anyone can do this effectively for peanuts. Sometimes being pretty really doesn't matter. This is one of those times.

You, on the other hand, are trying to sell something. Your service. And borderline skirting the rules here in the process. Probably won't get a whole lotta support here in your battle with bustert because of that. We're all here for the same reason. To help and be helped for no charge just cuz we love our rides.

Take my advice and let it go.

Everyone should have a ban hammer in their essential ironhead special tool box.
