Looks like all the info that I need! I think the timing info and assembly if its too much to deal with, can get a lower end from for 40.00 bucks! Thank you for the information, did not know this site was going to charge more than the original 5.00 first shown, charged 13.00, but did get the info Pretty Quick!! Thank you and stay cool! Gary
