    Did you look in that pile of stuff I dropped off ? I think there was at least one SB hood in there…maybe orange ?

    I hope that is more than just last night👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻  Bummer !

    But I’ll help again.  Let’s put the main seal flush with the back of the case so it’s up higher on the flywheel area..  no big deal, we’ll be faster this time!

    I did look for another hood.,  and was sure I would find one..  but no..  I had to fix this POS!   It was Rusty and had been pried open many times. Got it, about to undo this..  the back side I had to take out that brace and fix it also.  I ended up dusting the back side off in the blaster..
