    When I get some time, I'll post some more on the 2A. I have managed to get it back to road worthiness, then a set back reared its head. Not a big deal, but have to go back through the service...

    I agree with Bmorgil. A reprint of the original shop and service manual is a must because it is written in plain language. As Bmorgil said, do your research on your local machine shops. Talk to...
