Re: In Memory of Don Terrill

I would pay an annual fee but perhaps making the off topic section a paid area for posting and possibly an advertisers subforum could easily cover costs and some. If the forum makes a few bucks over costs no one would begrudge that.

Re: Speedmaster aluminum block

There is made in china to quality specifications & there is made in china by the lowest bidder. Guess which one applies to speedmaster/procomp? Exactly. It is rumoured that in Australia they have their own full time legal team. That alone should tell you something about the lottery you are entering...

Re: Cam LSA of 100 with big ports feedback

Is the head you're looking at using the J-Zed recreation of the old Duggan thing or a Yella Terra?
