I would have to reply as the doctor did in this little tale:

An 86-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up...

The doctor asked him how he was feeling, and the 86-year-old said, 'Things are great and I've never felt better.'

I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child.
'So what do you think about that Doc ?'

The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began to tell a story.

'I have an older friend , much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season.'

One day he was setting off to go hunting.

In a bit of a hurry , he accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun.'

'As he neared a lake , he came across a very large male beaver sitting at the water's edge.

He realized he'd left his gun at home and so he couldn't shoot the magnificent creature.

Out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle and went 'bang, bang'.'

'Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead.

Now, what do you think of that?' asked the doctor.

The 86-year-old said , 'Logic would strongly suggest that somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver.'

The doctor replied , 'My point exactly.'

How come race engines allways look like this when they are not running on full throttle? (Race day - 4)

Thanks from bushmechanic and tourist

To keep water where it should be, I have to put cotton sewing thread at specific places. Not very high tech, but it works! Test start tomorrow and then hopefully off for the races!

Sorry for a probably stupid question, but you are going to use a gasket?

The Multi Layer Steel (MLS) gasket is allready in place on the photo. I glued the cotton sewing threads on top of it.

However, all efforts were thrown away when the right side case cracked after 4 laps. Propably because the right main bearing seized. Fun. Indeed.
